Backflow prevention devices are responsible for keeping contaminants, such as pathogens from sewage or storage tanks, from getting into your potable water supply. Without a properly functioning backflow prevention device, your water will become just plain unsafe to use.
Unfortunately, backflow prevention devices tend to become corroded or worn over time due to their continuous contact with water. The presence of dirt or high mineral content in the water, for instance, will speed up the process of corrosion.
If your backflow prevention device is more than ten years old, it may need to be replaced. You can trust SoCal Sewer and Water to perform a thorough inspection of your device and, if necessary, repair your existing device or replace it altogether.
The cost associated with repairing or replacing your device depends on the nature of the unit and the extent of its defects. Give us a call to make an appointment for backflow prevention device repair and replacement in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
