Backflow Prevention for Calgary Homes

Keeping Your Freshwater Safe From Wastewater

Your plumbing deals with two different types of water: freshwater, which comes out of the taps, and wastewater, which goes down the drains. If the water flows in the right direction, your wastewater and freshwater will stay separate from each other.

If your plumbing starts to backflow, contaminants from your wastewater can pollute your freshwater, which creates a health hazard for you and your family.

Ace Plumbing installs, maintains, and repairs backflow prevention devices to ensure your freshwater stays clean and safe to use.

Contact us and protect your freshwater from backflow.

Backflow Prevention FAQs

Backflow can be the result of few different causes, most of which require a deeper technical explanation. To put it simply, sudden changes in water pressure can force wastewater to start moving in the wrong direction, contaminating your freshwater as it goes.

The pressure changes that cause backflow can include the use of a fire hydrant, a broken water main, and other situations that are out of your control, which is why it’s so important to have backflow preventers installed.

Your backflow preventers play a huge role in keeping your family safe and healthy. It’s crucial that they’re professionally inspected and maintained.

The City of Calgary requires all homeowners to have their backflow preventers inspected and tested annually. Ace Plumbing is happy to take care of that for you. If we discover the backflow preventer isn’t working properly, we’ll schedule you for the necessary repairs or replacement.

To prevent backflow, we install backflow prevention devices, or backflow preventers. These preventers are installed on cross-connections, or places where potable and non-potable water have the potential to meet.

The backflow preventer uses a valve to ensure water only flows in one direction. If water pressure does suddenly drop, the valve will close, keeping wastewater from flowing in the wrong direction and contaminating your freshwater.

You should call Ace Plumbing immediately if you notice:

  • Water flow is inconsistent
  • Visible rust & other particles in your water
  • Bad-tasting water
  • Unusual water colour
  • Slow draining
  • Unusual odours
