If you suspect you need backflow repair, reach out as soon as possible.
The best scenario when you need backflow repair is to catch the start of a problem during an annual maintenance visit before it can worsen. At Carolina Plumbing & Repair, we know that despite keeping up with regular service, something could still go wrong during the year. It isn’t particularly difficult to figure out that there is a problem, as the quality of your water will likely be affected.
Here are the key signs that you need backflow repair at your home or business in Carteret County, North Carolina:
- Foul-tasting water
- Discolored water
- Foul-smelling water
- Sediment in your water
- Reduced water pressure
- No water at all
- Slow draining throughout the property
- Leaking around the backflow preventer
It might surprise you just how many moving parts there are in a backflow preventer, including internal springs, valves, seals, cocks, and other parts. These do wear out over time and need to be replaced. When we perform backflow maintenance, we will inspect these parts to check for wear so they can be replaced before they fail and leave you and perhaps your neighbors with contaminated water.
Keep in mind that a part can fail despite looking perfectly fine during the inspection, so even if you are noticing these signs shortly after maintenance, don’t wait to have the backflow preventer checked out again, as backflow repair may be needed.
If you suspect you need backflow repair or you are due for annual maintenance, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to schedule an appointment.
