What is Backflow?

Backflow occurs when potable drinking water is mixed with contaminated water. The flow of water is reversed, causing the “backflow.” This is caused by either backpressure or backsiphonage.

Backpressure occurs when the water pressure in your plumbing line exceeds the water pressure of the municipal line. This allows wastewater from your plumbing system to enter the city’s main water line, which can lead to contaminated drinking water.

Backsiphonage occurs when contaminated water flows in the reverse direction due to a change in pressure. This often happens when a fire hydrant is in use or bursts, or when there is a water main break.

A properly installed backflow prevention assembly will help you avoid problems with backpressure and backsiphonage, and keep the community’s drinking water safe.

Are You Required to Install a Backflow Prevention Assembly?

Backflow prevention assemblies are mostly used in commercial buildings. However, some homeowners are required to have backflow prevention in place as well—particularly if you have cross connections between your plumbing system and the municipal water system.

If your property has any of the following, you will need to install a backflow prevention assembly per county regulations:
  • Irrigation systems (sprinklers)
  • Fire protection systems
  • Large boilers (often used in multi-family buildings)

These systems can introduce harmful contaminants—such as pesticides, chemicals, chlorine, sediment, or waste—into the drinking water supply if cross-connection occurs.

Rocksteady Plumbing provides expert backflow prevention assembly installations for residential and commercial properties using Wilkins products.

The types of systems we install include:
  • Lead-free reduced pressure principle assemblies (for domestic water lines)
  • Double check detector assemblies (for fire protection systems)
  • Double check assemblies
Paul was awesome! Professional, knowledgeable, took time to answer all my questions, put the hose back after using it! Very very happy with his service. Also answered my call after hours to schedule for next day service. Highly recommend!

Thank you Rocksteady Plumbing for coming out to Creston to fix our leaking pot filler faucet. I had tried two other Paso plumbers and neither followed up or I guess wanted the business after phone calls, photos of the faucet leak and emails. Very frustrating getting good service out in the country. I was recommended to Rocksteady Plumbing by our painter - word of mouth advertising is still the best. Paul (owner) set up our appointment next day and kept me posted on his crew's arrival. While there was a delay due to a flood home emergency which is fully understandable - Alex came out the next morning and made the fix I could not do myself. Sometimes you have to know your limitations and let the professionals do the job. Highly recommended for service and response - especially out here in Creston.

Highly recommend! They came out to run a water line to my fridge, what we thought would be a quick fix ended up taking a lot of time and effort but they solved the issue and got the line working!

Paul came the same day I called; fixed my tankless water heater and gave me a great education about the product. Later I had another problem and he helped me trouble shoot on phone during the storm to discover an electrical issue and recommended an electrician.
