Common Signs Your Backflow System Needs Attention

Ensuring proper functioning of your backflow prevention system is key to keeping your homes and business’s water supply safe and dependable. It’s important to be aware of the early signs of any issues to address them promptly. Recognizing signs that your backflow prevention system needs attention is crucial in maintaining a safe and healthy water supply.

Here are common signs to watch out for:

Water Discoloration: If you notice unusual colors in your water, such as brown, yellow, or even pink tints, it may indicate that contaminated water is mixing with your clean supply due to a backflow issue.

Unusual Taste or Smell: A change in the taste or smell of your water, particularly a metallic, sulfurous, or chemical-like taste, can be a warning sign that your backflow system isn't functioning correctly.

Reduced Water Pressure: A significant and sudden drop in water pressure throughout your home could be a symptom of a backflow preventer failure, as the system might be allowing water to flow in the wrong direction.

Visible Leaks or Drips: Any visible leaks or drips from the backflow prevention device itself are clear indicators that the system is malfunctioning and needs immediate professional attention.
