Backflow prevention is critical in plumbing systems. Backflow occurs when contaminated water is able to flow back into the water supply, such as a faucet. This can be very serious, especially when dealing with serious contaminants such as human waste.

Backflow can occur for a number of different reasons. In a typical plumbing system, pressure is maintained to keep the clean water flowing into the home or building. Various problems, such as frozen pipes, pipe leaks, or even unexpectedly high demand can cause this system to fail and backflow can occur. It is also important to test for backflow during major changes to the plumbing system, such as during remodels. Backflow preventers are designed to protect people from contamination, but backflow testing is still critical to be sure that the system is working well. At Brecke, we can help customers by testing their water supply to see if any contamination is occurring. Our plumbers can also help our Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and Dubuque, Iowa area customers isolate the problem and determine the best way to correct it.

Brecke plumbers work with customers and their individual water system to help repair any causes of backflow and determine the best backflow preventer to keep the problem from occurring again. Preventers are devices designed to prevent water from flowing in the wrong direction. There are different types of backflow preventers used for different parts of the water system. For example, RPZ backflow preventers are commonly used in areas where the risk of hazard is high, Brecke offers insight and experience to repair or replace backflow preventers on any commerical, industrial, or residential property in Eastern Iowa.
