At ABC Scapes, we offer more than just landscaping maintenance. One specific service we offer is backflow prevention. In this post, we detail what it is, and the causes of it as well.
Along with many other things, backflow prevention is a mandatory process in your landscape. It insures that clean water from municipal water lines flows and does not become contaminated with dirty water. Commercial properties are required to have prevention, and annual inspection of these devices is mandatory to make sure they are operating correctly.
When there is an unexpected change in water pressure, dirty water can seep into the clean water and enter the plumbing system. This can be potentially hazardous, as this means particles such as chemicals, fertilizers, and other dangerous elements can contaminate what should be clean water. In many instances, backflow preventers are built into the plumbing system, but changes in water pressure can cause these valves to fail.
Hiring a landscape company that knows how to provide backflow services as well as how to spot the warning signs of failed valves is vital to a healthy lawn and a healthy environment. Give ABC scapes a call to handle all of your needs at 602.404.0568!
