What is Backflow? What Causes It?

Backflow is caused when a cross-connection occurs between a private plumbing line and the municipal water line. Without an effective backflow prevention system in place, wastewater can reverse its course and end up flowing into the city’s water line—effectively contaminating the community’s potable supply of water.

Two issues can lead to backflow: backpressure and backsiphonage. 

Backpressure involves an imbalance in water pressure. If the water pressure in a private plumbing line is greater than the water pressure in the municipal line, then it can result in backpressure.

Backsiphonage, on the other hand, is typically caused by damage to the municipal water main, or if a fire hydrant is illegally or incorrectly opened.

This is why it’s so important to install backflow prevention systems and devices, and to have them inspected annually by a certified Clearfield, Utah, backflow tester.

    My basement flooded and Thurgood plumbing responded quickly. Gusto Dutson is one hard working guy. He did a great job! Thank you.Edited to add: the floor in the basement knocked out my furnace. I haven't had heat for a week. I was afraid the foot of water had killed my furnace. Thurgood send out the HVAC guy this morning and he got the heat back on AND DIDN'T CHARGE ME. I'm in tears.

    I needed to install a pressure regulator coming into my house and called Thurgood Plumbing to take a look. Gusto came and assessed the situation, giving me an estimated cost that was completely reasonable. He talked me through what he was doing, and was very professional and personable. The work was exactly what I expected and the service was excellent. Thanks Gusto & Thurgood Plumbing!
