Orange County Backflow Prevention

Fresh water is a modern amenity we can all appreciate. It’s a necessity for drinking, cooking, and cleaning. However, many issues can affect water quality in your home, one of them being backflow. The water in your plumbing system normally flows in one direction. Backflow is when it reverses, causing contaminated sewage to enter your water supply. While backflow prevention devices avoid this, they can develop problems or be overwhelmed by high water pressure. Fortunately, NexGen specializes in backflow prevention systems to keep the water in Orange County homes clean and safe.

Benefits of Backflow Prevention

A working backflow preventer keeps contaminated water out of your home. It is a reliable safeguard that stops foreign materials and pollutants from getting into your water supply, including:
  • Bacteria: Wastewater can contain a wide range of harmful microorganisms that can cause infections and diseases, including cholera and salmonella. 
  • Chemicals: Sewage can contain high concentrations of ammonium, nitrogen, nitrates, phosphorous, and a wide range of other chemicals. 
  • Gases: Sewer gas can make it difficult to breathe and cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, and eye, nose, and throat irritation. The most toxic sewer gases include ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.
Therefore, a backflow preventer not only avoids a mess. It protects your household from hazards and illnesses associated with contaminants in raw sewage. That brings us to these additional benefits of backflow prevention:
  • Ensures Clean and Safe Water: Aside from bacteria, chemicals, and gases, it also helps keep sediment and rust particles out of your water supply. Without a backflow preventer, water may smell or taste bad or even appear muddy.
  • Avoids Broken Pipes: Backflow prevention devices help avoid pressure buildups that can cause pipes to burst, which can lead to extensive water damage throughout your home.
  • Maintains Water Pressure: : Backflow issues can cause drops in water pressure that can make it difficult to shower, cook, clean, or otherwise use water for basic household chores.

The Importance of Backflow Testing

Drops in water pressure can occur due to disruptions including broken water mains and the use of nearby fire hydrants. It’s these pressure drops that can cause the flow of water in your home to reverse. A faulty backflow valve won’t stop backflowing water from reaching your fixtures.

Fortunately, such an issue can be detected by using a backflow tester. We recommend annual testing and maintenance to make sure your backflow prevention devices are working. Most have a built-in port that, when downstream water sources are turned off, allows the plumber to measure the differential pressure across the system’s check valves.

Contact NexGen Today

We provide backflow maintenance, testing, and repair as part of our comprehensive range of commercial and residential plumbing services.

Amazing Reviews From Our Loved Clients

Not only did his team deliver promptly and on time, they were friendly and left with a professional install of my new A/C unit. I can’t mention the AWESOME price I got, but needless to say they can beat any deal, and will give you the fastest 1st-rate service available.

Yesterday I had NexGen install a new furnace and a/c system to replace my 30-year-old system. Their representative Jeff met with me the day before to go over the system that would work best for my home, and presented me with a price I couldn’t turn down. Incidentally, NexGen’s price was over $3,000 cheaper than all other competitors.

My call was promptly returned by Jeff and an appointment was scheduled for the next day. Jeff presented an offer that I couldn’t refuse! A crew was available that day and came, saw and conquered. I had A/C that evening at a very fair price. Highly recommend NexGen.
