Commercial Backflow Prevention in Beaumont
Call Our Beaumont Commercial Plumbers Now!
Your business may work with any number of chemicals or substances that could be harmful. It also likely uses an abundance of water for worker safety, sanitation, and waste disposal if this is the case. Keeping clean and dirty water separate may seem simple, but a blockage in a drain for contaminated water could result in potentially devastating consequences to the municipal water supply if no protective devices are in place. This risk is particularly high when there is some form of a direct connection between clean and contaminated water. Therefore, businesses are required to have these preventative measures in place to prevent the municipal water supply from being contaminated should dirty water risk coming into contact with clean water through backflow.
At Impact Plumbing, LLC, we understand how important it is to have safe, reliable, and trustworthy backflow solutions installed and working properly. If you face any sort of an issue, your entire business could shut down, costing you valuable money and risking potentially massive consequences. Our Beaumont plumbers recognize the need to react quickly, and we offer high-quality repair, installation, and maintenance services for all types of backflow prevention devices, including for new constructions, retrofits, and replacements for existing structures.
What is Backflow?
Water flows through the municipal plumbing system under pressure in order to provide continual flow to faucets, toilets, and other fixtures. Therefore, under enough pressure, water could theoretically reverse flow the other direction, forcing dirty, contaminated water into the municipal supply, potentially causing numerous problems for countless other people. Backflow is the process by which old water enters the municipal supply.
What Causes Backflow?
Water comes into your business, and it also likely to leave out to the sewers at some point. When the dirty water lines become clogged or jammed, water can build up and back up through equipment and potentially contaminate any clean water lines that they may be connected to. A backup that’s serious enough could potentially push dirty water all the way back out to the main line, where it then contaminates the local water supply.
Say you have a piece of equipment that uses a closed system to provide clean water to cool itself and drain away residue before allowing it to flow to the sewer. If the sewer line from this piece of equipment clogs, it could potentially stop the water flow back through the piece of equipment and eventually causing the stoppage to go all the way back to the main water line. In some cases this can contaminate other water sources in your business, and in severe cases, this contaminated backup can reach all the way back to the main line.
A backflow prevention device is a special type of check valve that is designed to engage and shut off water flow when it detects an unexpected or sudden change in water pressure. When installed properly, these valves will prevent any contaminated water flow from reaching the municipal water supply, keeping your neighbor's water safe and trustworthy, and limiting the damage you could face.
