Understanding Backflow Prevention Devices
A backflow prevention device is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow. In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower, or other fixture. For most installations, DEP specifies approved airgap RPZ backflow preventers on main incoming water services. Yet there are many cases in which check valves and vacuum breakers are practical and acceptable.
The Benefits of Professional Backflow Prevention in Queens
A seasoned professional Queens plumber is vital in order to determine which is the correct application for each service. There are several types of backflow prevention systems available to you. For instance you can choose from domestic, sprinkler, or a combination of features such as adding fire protection.
