What are Backflow Preventers?

Backflow preventers are plumbing devices that are specially designed to impede the onset of water contamination not only in residential properties but also in commercial establishments, too. In the state of Florida, these devices are required to be installed in certain establishments such as car washes, restaurants, medical centers, beauty salons, automobile repair shops, barber shops and dry cleaners.

Unfortunately, the installation of backflow preventers is not for the DIY plumbers. These devices can only be installed by our licensed Miami backflow prevention technicians who have passed backflow prevention examinations and acquired the necessary certification.

Accurately Diagnosing the Causes of Backflow

Backflow takes place when emergency hydraulic events within the public and private water distribution system affect the drinking or potable water supply. Negative or high pressure can cause contaminants to enter potable water pipes.

For example, backflow can occur in the following instances:

  • A broken water distribution pipe or water main
  • Drainage from properties resulting from plumbing work
  • Large quantities of water used by the firefighters during emergencies
  • Equipment or processes using pressure greater than that of the normal water distribution
  • Large-scale power outages
