Protect Your Home With a Backflow Preventer

You rely on your plumbing system to bring you freshwater for use in your household activities and if you utilize a boosted pump, GWA requires you to have a backflow preventer. Reduced Pressure Backflow Assemblies is designed to prevent backflow caused by backpressure or backsiphonage which could result in backflow within your system, potentially contaminating the water source for you and your neighbors. Backflowing water can carry contaminants and harmful chemicals back to the main water supply, causing a significant health concern. Barrett Plumbing can help you avoid this problem with a backflow preventer at your Guam home. This device will protect your system from backflow and give you peace of mind that your water is clean and safe for use. We also repair and provide annual certification as required by GWA. Contact us today for additional information.

What Is a Reduced Pressure Zone Backflow Preventer?

A reduced pressure zone backflow preventer is a device that allows water to flow in one direction, but never in the opposite direction. Water entering your home from the water main is only supposed to move in one direction, flowing into your home. However, sometimes pressure changes and other conditions can cause the water to move backward, allowing water to seep back into the main supply line. This backward movement can potentially contaminate the public water supply with harmful pollutants like fertilizers, human waste, chlorine, or soap. A backflow preventer is installed onto pipes and acts as a one-way gate that allows water in but stops water that tries to flow out.
