This can be very serious, especially when dealing with serious contaminants such as human waste.

Backflow Testing

Backflow can occur for a number of different reasons. In a typical plumbing system, pressure is maintained to keep the clean water flowing into the home or building. Various problems, such as frozen pipes, pipe leaks, or even unexpectedly high demand can cause this system to fail and backflow can occur. It is also important to test for backflow during major changes to the plumbing system, such as a home remodel. Backflow preventers are designed to protect people from contamination, but backflow testing is still critical to be sure that the system is working well. P&D Mechanical can help customers by testing their water supply to see if any contamination is occurring. P&D Plumbers can also help customers isolate the problem and determine the best way to correct it.

Backflow Preventer

P&D Mechanical plumbers work with customers and their individual water system to help repair any causes of backflow and determine the best backflow preventer to keep the problem from occurring again. Preventers are devices designed to prevent water from flowing in the wrong direction. There are different types of backflow preventers used for different parts of the water system. For example, RPZ backflow preventers are commonly used in areas where the risk of hazard is high, P&D Mechanical offers insight and experience to repair or replace backflow preventers.

When it comes to keeping a water supply secured and safe, preventing backflow is high on the list of priorities. Let P&D Mechanical help Minneapolis customers test for backflow and use the appropriate backflow preventer to keep their water supply healthy.
