Backflow Prevention is One Very Important Way to Prevent Contaminants from Entering Your Home Water Supply.
Backflow preventers have a very simple but vital purpose in life: prevent contaminated water from flowing back into your home from an outdoor water supply.
At Norhio Plumbing, installing and testing backflow prevention valves isn’t just something we do: it’s one of our specialties. Company founder Herman Bohinc is a state-certified backflow prevention instructor and has been teaching backflow prevention for the past 29 years. He has worked tirelessly educating fellow plumbers and the general public about the importance of backflow prevention. He’s gone so far as instructing and certifying most, if not all, of his competition in backflow prevention.
What causes the problem?
Backflow occurs when the flow of water reverses. So, let’s say you have a lawn irrigation system and also apply pesticides and weed killers to your lawn. Should that water back up, all of those poisonous substances could enter your home water supply where they can cause very serious health problems. Water can also back up from your sewer lines, the city water main, or your well water system.
How to protect your Family.
At Norhio Plumbing, we consider backflow prevention valves a “must have” on your water supply. If you agree, contact us today to schedule a professional installation or for a safety inspection of your current valve, especially if the most recent test was more than a year ago.
After all, clean, chemical-free water isn’t something you should have to worry about. With Norhio Plumbing in your corner, you won’t have to.
