Backflow Testing & Remediation
When the water in your pipes switches directions and starts heading back into your home, it’s called backflow. It’s a pretty serious issue, as it can be a major health hazard. At Wolcott, we have been helping homeowners in the Portland Metro area deal with backflow since 1978, so if you suspect that you’ve got a backflow problem, give us a call.
Why Test for Backflow?
If a broken water main, construction, or wacky weather have caused an interruption in your water supply, your water may not be safe for drinking, cooking, and bathing. Backflow testing helps us make sure that it is clear of bacteria and other harmful contaminants..
The Backflow Testing Process
Licensed Wolcott professionals will come out with a special kit and test your water to determine whether there is any bacteria, sediment, or debris present. Looking at these can tell us whether backflow has occurred.
Don’t Gamble with Backflow
Backflow is more common in some areas than in others. If you live in one of the places where backflow happens more often, you should consider updating your plumbing system to include a backflow prevention device. Since backflow can lead to serious health problems, please call Wolcott if you ever suspect that your home may be affected.
