Backflow Prevention

Backflow

When a connection is made to the public water system and to another source containing non-potable water, a backflow preventor is installed to keep the non-potable water from contaminating the public water system. A backflow preventor must be used when installing irrigation, auxiliary water systems, or cooling systems.

Backflow Prevention and
Cross Connection Control Installation

Ace’s plumbers can install backflow preventers and cross connection control systems for residential and commercial systems. Household plumbing can also require backflow prevention, this will protect your family from backflow from toilets, laundry sinks, outdoor faucets, lawn irrigation and even heating and air conditioning systems.
A 2003 study from the University of Southern California Foundation for Cross-Connection Control and Hydraulic Research (USC-FCCCHR) determined the degree of protection against backflow that is present in today’s homes.
