Plumbing lines are designed to carry water and other liquids in one direction. If something is wrong, the water can back-up or flow into your pipes. That can constitute a major problem: sending non-potable water up through your sinks and toilets, and exposing the entire building to toxic materials in the process. Backflow prevention is good for residential properties and essential for commercial properties.
Commercial cross control prevention devices installed and maintained by Embrich Plumbing Co can halt backflow in its tracks. Through yearly maintenance and proper installation, Embrich Plumbing can help protect your employees and customers from a major health hazard, while making sure your commercial space is safe as well.
CAUSES OF BACKFLOW
Backflow problems are typically created by forces that are beyond the customer’s control. It often means that the Maryville, IL civic system has a blocked main or flooded sewer system, which can happen during periods of heavy rain or snow. It can also be caused by tree roots interfering with pipes, damage to your sewer line or even the unauthorized use of a fire hydrant somewhere else in the city. None of these are factors that you or your business can influence. But regardless of fault, it is your responsibility to have a system in place to prevent backflow from affecting your property in the first place.
BACKFLOW PREVENTION DEVICES
A backflow prevention device installed in your business’s sewer main, can make all the difference in the world. It’s a comparatively simple system: angled to allow wastewater to flow out of the building, but snapping shut the moment any water moves back up your pipes. Installing one takes a professional technician, but once it’s in place, you no longer need to concern yourself with factors beyond your control. Your business will stay safe with the plumbing experts at Embrich Plumbing Co who are skilled in repair and maintenance of backflow prevention devices.
