A deviation from the normal conditions within the system causes the flow of supply water to go the opposite direction—this is the definition of a backflow. Any flow of solid, liquid, or gas and/or other foreign materials through the piping system is another form of backflow. When this happens, there’s a threat of contamination that could prove to be harmful.
The lack of backflow and piping protection leads to back-siphonage and back pressure, which are the two common causes of backflow. While both are serious concerns, the latter is arguably more harmful. It creates a link between potable water piping and other commercial or residential equipment such as boilers and heat exchangers. In cases where natural gas ends up entering the water pipes, flaming tap water and even sudden explosions become a possibility.

Diamondback Plumbing can help you with the following:
How sure are you that your business is using safe and uncontaminated water? After all, even if you’re not worried about flammable gases entering the pipes, there’s still the chance that toxic substances are getting discreetly pumped into your water—benzene, for example, is carcinogenic even at very small amounts.
Now, keep in mind that if a backflow test isn’t conducted annually, there’s a big chance for the backflow assembly to fail. Like any contraption, backflow prevention devices contain moving parts that eventually wear out. Preventive maintenance of these devices is usually bypassed, which is why it’s important to ensure that yours is functioning properly so as to avoid any unnecessary risks.
Our specialists here at Diamondback Plumbing are more than happy to help whenever there’s a need for repair—no matter how minor the issue may seem. They take their job seriously and will only leave once the backflow device is again in proper working order. It’s guaranteed that you will get the best service.
Commercial businesses such as restaurants, apartments, funeral facilities, hair and nail salons, malls, and the like require the proper installation of a backflow preventer. As we’ve mentioned, this is necessary so as to be completely certain that customers are provided with clean water supply. Of course, preventing backflow also means all sorts of health hazards will be effectively avoided.
Do-it-Yourself (DIY) installations of backflow prevention devices have become rather rampant these days. Although this option may reduce the cost of installation, there’s the risk that the mechanism used isn’t compatible with the water source. A backflow preventer is a complicated piece of machinery that requires the right knowledge and skills to properly set up.
Here at Diamondback Plumbing, we offer backflow prevention device installation—and we can guarantee that it’s going to be suited for immediate use and will fully comply with Flagstaff’s regulations.
