When water reverses its flow back into clean water lines, this is called backflow. Backflow poses a serious risk to your health and property, bringing contaminated and unclean water back into your living space.
Backflow vs. Backup
Water backflow and backup are two separate issues. Simply having standing water in your sink or shower is considered a backup. But when wastewater is coming back into your space through the sink, toilet, or shower drain, this is backflow.
While backflow is the less common of the two, it does pose a greater concern. Backflow water is polluted; feces, pesticides, chemicals, fertilizers, and other hazardous materials can all be present.
Prevention = Protection
The best protection against this problem is prevention. A backflow prevention device is relatively simple, consisting of two of mechanical check valves to prevent dirty water from flowing back into the clean water supply. This can happen unexpectedly when there is a drastic change in water pressure; something that can be caused by ruptured lines or natural disasters. In other words, backflow is usually caused by problems you can’t prevent with normal maintenance.
Because you never know when something like this might happen, it’s important to be well prepared. When properly installed and maintained, a backflow preventer will keep your family’s drinking water clean and safe. Your service provider will advise you on a maintenance schedule and regular checks.

Are you in need of garbage disposal repair? A garbage disposal or food waste disposer and waste disposal unit as they are often referred is a device, usually electrically-powered, installed under a kitchen sink between the sink’s drain and the trap which shreds food waste into pieces small enough to pass through your home’s plumbing system. Because this involves a mechanical piece of equipment and is ultimately tied to your sanitary sewer or septic tank system, plumbing problems may occur. At present, some forty-seven percent of the homes in the United States utilize a garbage disposal.
Scraps of food comprise between 10% and 20% of the average household waste. There has been an increasingly problematic issue associated with the disposal of leftover food, as it relates to, municipal waste disposal, public health concerns, sanitation and environmental problems. If you treat food waste as a liquid (since it is roughly 70% water), then modern wastewater plants can more effectively process the organic solids, which is an environmental boost. This also minimizes the amount of waste that will eventually end up in the landfill, decomposing and generating methane gas. Methane gas is thought to be a major contributor to global warming and is some twenty-one times more toxic carbon dioxide. Some steps that you can take include:
Cleaning Your Garbage Disposer
Foul odors can occur from a buildup of food debris within the disposal. Try these steps to eliminate the odors:
Grind ice cubes and orange or lemon rinds in the disposer for about 30 seconds
While the disposer is still running, pour a small amount of liquid dish detergent into it
Rinse any remaining debris away by running cold water for about 30 seconds
