Trusted Anchorage Backflow Testing & Repair
A backflow/check valve is designed to let liquids and solids flow in one direction. Consequently, the liquids and solids cannot back up and flow in the opposite direction. A backflow valve is used in connection with sewer lines because the sewage will only flow away from the home and not back into the house.
In areas where there is a problem with main sewer lines backing up, backflow valves are something to give serious consideration.
Why would municipal main sewer lines back up?
Large-scale backups can occur in areas with flooding or where heavy rains can overtax the stormwater and sewer system. Some homeowners experience a pest problem in their homes, with the pests crawling up the main line and then getting into the house through the side sewer.
A backflow valve can significantly help control this type of situation. Each of our licensed plumbers can help with backflow preventer testing.
If you have a backflow prevention valve installed, you will want a professional to do the job, and you will want to know the location of the backflow valve. This is because the valve only opens in one direction, so if, for example, someone tries to clear the line with a cable and passes the cable through the valve on the way out of the house, there’s no way to retrieve the cable without breaking the valve when the cable is pulled back. Access to the backflow is also essential to check and maintain it correctly.
If water starts to flow backward, hazardous chemicals or bacteria will jeopardize your water supply. A primary check valve will prevent your home or business from an unhealthy or dangerous situation.
