There are several situations in which backflow replacement is the best course of action.
Sometimes equipment wears out to the point that repairs are not a feasible solution. That can be the case with the backflow preventer at your Carteret County, North Carolina home or business. At Carolina Plumbing & Repair, we have the experience to gauge when repairs are a viable solution or when backflow replacement is the best option. If the cost of the repair, the difficulty involved, or parts availability are such that repair isn’t the way to go, we will explain that to you and quote you for replacing the unit instead.
There are additional situations in which we would recommend backflow replacement. For example, if your preventer is quite old, it makes more sense to replace it. If the model you have is an old style that contains lead, we would also highly suggest backflow replacement. In addition, if the original installation could be greatly improved upon for more cost-effective and easier repairs when needed, we’ll make the recommendation for backflow replacement.
We will always fully explain why we are suggesting either repairs or replacement so that you can make an informed decision. Keep in mind, however, that sometimes backflow replacement is absolutely necessary, such as if the system cannot be repaired to function within municipality requirements for water quality safety.
If you are having issues with your backflow preventer, reach out to us today to get it checked out to learn whether it can be repaired or if backflow replacement is needed. You’ll always get an accurate assessment and honest recommendation as to how to best proceed at your home or business.
