Backflow Testing & Prevention Services From Iceberg Home Services
Maintaining your home’s interior plumbing system is just as crucial as other routine exterior repairs. Installing a backflow system helps to protect the water quality of your home or business by keeping drain water moving in one direction — outside of your home.
Backflow can happen for a few reasons — burst water main, fire hydrant usage, and other demands on your water system. Without a backflow system, when your water system loses pressure, water can be siphoned up into your home’s plumbing, contaminating drinking water and other appliances.
At Iceberg Home Services, our trusted professionals offer top-quality services to keep your water quality in excellent condition with testing on a wide range of backflow prevention devices. We provide testing on:
- Pressure Vacuum Breakers
- Atmospheric Vacuum Breakers
- Backflow Preventer
- Check Valves
- Air Gaps
The Importance of Routine Backflow Testing
When a backflow prevention device is installed to protect your water quality, it’s vital to ensure that it functions properly. Because backflow can occur at any cross-connection point where dirty water intersects with clean water, it’s crucial to prevent reverse flow. Backflow water can contain contaminants and hazardous materials such as chemicals, human waste, and other potentially harmful substances. Testing your system routinely confirms that it works properly to keep debris from entering your drinking water.
The Benefits of Backflow Testing
The most significant benefit of backflow testing is safety; however, backflow can become a more substantial problem with costly damages if left unchecked. Here are a few benefits:
- Getting your system routinely tested is the only way to ensure that your water is up to city safety standards. Drinking polluted water poses a considerable risk to the overall health of yourself and your family.
- Backflow can also cause moisture-related damages to properties over a period.
- Helps to prevent fines and penalties caused by a system that doesn’t meet state or city standards.

What are the different types of backflows?
There are two types of backflows: back-siphonage and back-pressure. Back-siphonage is caused by negative pressure from the water being pulled in the supply piping due to repairs of breaks on a water main, causing the regular water supply to reverse flow and move back up. Back-pressure occurs when the water pressure moving through the system is greater than the supply pressure in systems such as boilers, elevated tanks, etc.
Why is my backflow prevention device leaking?
Backflow prevention devices should never continuously leak. A backflow prevention system alleviates your water system’s pressure when it is turned off. If you notice that your system is leaking, it’s crucial to have a technician come out to test your system and ensure that it is correctly installed for optimal water quality.
