Carlsbad & San Diego County Backflow Prevention Devices
Independent Plumbing and Drain Provides Backflow Testing & Installation
Your potable water supply stays safe from any type of impurity due to backflow prevention devices. When you open your faucets and water flows out, you likely don't give it another thought. However, if there is a noticeable drop in water pressure, you could be at risk for a backflow. Backflow occurs if your water reverses and contaminates your water supply, rather than being carried out and away as usual. At Independent Plumbing and Drain, we are a professional Carlsbad plumbing company who can perform backflow testing or device installation.

Is Backflow Testing Necessary?
If you have a backflow preventer installed in your home, you should have it professionally tested on a yearly basis. If you do not have a backflow preventer device, you may want to consider the installation of one. This type of device is useful in detecting if backflow is going to occur and helping to prevent the reversal of water and contamination of water flowing into your supply.
When backflow prevention devices are faulty, they may:
- Fail to prevent contaminated water from entering your potable water supply
- Allow water to be wasted as a result of leaking devices
- Cause the water pressure in your home to drop
Replacing & Installing Backflow Prevention Devices
At Independent Plumbing and Drain, our licensed professionals are skilled at determining if a backflow device is efficiently keeping you safe or if it is inefficient and putting you in danger by performing backflow testing. If upon the completion of our inspection we find that your plumbing system may be at risk, we will recommend that you replace your device. In most cases, these devices should be replaced every five years.
