Understanding Backflow and Its Risks
Maintaining significant water pressure is vital for ensuring proper water flow from taps, showers, and other plumbing fixtures. However, interruptions in water pressure due to malfunctions or high demand can lead to a reduction in pressure, potentially allowing the reverse flow of contaminated water. In such cases, water from the soil, storage, or other sources may be drawn back into clean water lines, resulting in exposure to harmful substances like pesticides, chemicals, fertilizer, feces, and other health risks. At J.E. Shekell, Inc., our skilled plumbers are committed to providing straightforward, trustworthy, and sustainable backflow prevention solutions throughout Indiana.
