What Is Backflow?

Backflow is a term used in plumbing to describe the unwanted flow of water in the reverse direction. Certain hydraulic conditions within the water distribution system can force wastewater backward and into your home. If you are experiencing backflow, you will notice water overflowing from your toilet, sink, or shower drains. Wastewater coming back into your home can be a serious safety and health risk considering you could be exposed to human waste and other toxins such as fertilizers, pesticides, chemicals, cleaners, and more.

Backflow is often caused by one of two things:

  1. Back siphonage: This occurs when water pressure within the plumbing pipes drops dramatically and wastewater is pulled backward.
  2. Back pressure: This occurs when the water pressure in a non-potable water source (such as a boiler or sprinkler system) is much higher than the water pressure of your clean water supply.

Signs of a Backflow Issue

It is important to recognize the signs of a backflow issue so you can have it repaired right away and minimize the damage.

Signs you need to schedule a backflow repair in San Diego include:

  • Fluctuating water pressure
  • Funky tasting water
  • Slow or clogged drains
  • Frequently clogged toilets
  • Multiple drain clogs
  • Sewage odors coming from drains
  • Bubbling or gurgling drains

How You Can Prevent Backflow

Backflow problems can be resolved or prevented by installing a backflow preventer. This device contains valves that activate when they detect backflow or significant changes in pressure. These valves prevent backflow from making its way through your toilet, sinks, tubs, and showers. To eliminate your backflow issues, reach out to the San Diego backflow repair techs at John Padilla Plumbing Inc.
