Backflow control and prevention

Water supply is normally maintained at a significant pressure, and this enables it to flow easily from a tap, shower or garden hose.

2PPlumbing are specialists at backflow control and prevention. We can address all your backflow issues by designing a remedial system specifically suited to fix your home or commercial water flow problems.

Water pressure can be interrupted, dramatically fall, or even completely fail in certain situations such as a water main bursting, a pipe freezing or if there is an unexpectedly high demand on our water system. This leads to reduced water pressure, allowing an unwanted flow of water in a reverse direction and permitting contaminated water to be drawn up into our water system.

Backflow is the term plumbers’ use for this dynamic.

It is not just inconvenient; it can be a serious health risk as it contaminates clean water with dirty water. Plumbers describe backflow as occurring because of either back pressure or back siphonage.

Our services include:

  • Detailed analysis of your backflow problem.
  • Use of an air gap to prevent back siphonage.
  • Installation of a specialized backflow preventing valves at strategic locations in the plumbing system.
