Whether you're cooking dinner on a chaotic school night or managing an enterprise, we're committed to ensuring that the water you depend on remains pure and safe. Maintaining water safety is a collaborative effort vital for residential and commercial properties.

Understanding Backflow and Its Risks

Were you aware that San Diego's water system operates like a one-way street, allowing only clean water to enter your property? However, this flow can sometimes become disrupted, leading to backflow. This could result in unwanted substances contaminating our clean water supply—a scary thought! Don’t worry; we’re here to break it down for you.

Knowing about backpressure and back siphonage is crucial for safeguarding our water supply. Backpressure occurs when the pressure within your system exceeds that of the public water system, which could lead to contaminated water flowing back into the clean supply. On the other hand, back siphonage occurs when there's a drop in pressure in the public system, creating a vacuum that pulls contaminants into the water supply. To prevent these situations, it's important to implement preventive measures like using backflow prevention devices to maintain the safety and cleanliness of San Diego's water for everyone.

Protecting Your Home and Business

For homeowners, it's crucial to ensure your sprinkler system is equipped with a backflow preventer for optimal performance. For fellow business owners, let's prioritize regular checkups to maintain the safety of our premises. It's all about peace of mind, knowing that we're playing our part in preserving the integrity of our water supply.
