Backflow Services We're Here When You Need Us

Raleigh Backflow Testing

Offering Expert Repair, Prevention & Certification Services

Simply put, backflow is when water runs the wrong direction in your plumbing system. With a properly functioning plumbing system, water enters your home through the main water line, and it exits through your sewer line. Plumbing systems run in one direction. This is what keeps your freshwater supply clean and uncontaminated. Most homeowners have a backflow prevention device installed in their plumbing system. If this breaks, or if you suspect you have a backflow problem, our backflow repair plumbers in Raleigh can help.

Midtown Plumbing, LLC is committed to the safety of our customers. We take backflow issues very seriously. The goal of our Raleigh backflow prevention team is to keep your backflow prevention device in excellent condition and to keep your water supply safe and healthy.

Dealing with Cross Connections

Cross connections are connections where a clean water supply source (your drinking water) meets up with a system or source that uses non-potable water. These connections are necessary, but they pose a risk of contamination if the connections are improperly installed or you do not have a backflow prevention device. You must have backflow prevention devices set up to protect these connections.

Common cross-connections in residential homes include:

  • Garden hoses and hose bibs
  • Landscape irrigation systems

Your backflow assembly is what stops water from flowing in two directions and prevents contamination of your drinking water. The containment assembly is the first backflow device installed after the water meter.

Signs of a Backflow Problem

There are two causes of backflow. The first is called backpressure and occurs when water is forced in the wrong direction. The second is called back-siphonage and occurs when the water pressure in the water supply line suddenly drops lower than the pressure in your plumbing system. There are signs of a backflow problem of which you can be aware.

Signs of backflow in your plumbing system include:

  • Your water smells like rotten eggs or sulphur
  • Your water tastes bad
  • The water coming from your faucet is discolored
  • There is sediment in your water

If you notice any of the following signs, you should call our Raleigh backflow prevention plumber right away for help. You should always treat water contamination seriously. Midtown Plumbing, LLC takes every call seriously, and we can effectively manage and resolve your backflow issue.
