Backflow Prevention

Normally, water flows forward from the city water supply system into your home. Backflow is the ‘backward flow’ into the public water supply. This can be caused by either back pressure or back siphonage of your plumbing system. If water flowing backward contains hazardous chemicals, toxins, or bacteria, this can cause a very unhealthy and even dangerous situation for many people.

Your garden hose is actually the most common cause of backflow. For example, let’s say you’re watering your garden with a pesticide applicator attached to the hose. Your kids want a snack, while you’re inside fixing the snacks, there is a drop in water pressure in the supply system that causes a vacuum.  This vacuum will pull the pesticide-laced water into your home. The next time you or your neighbor’s turn on a faucet, the water could be laced with toxic chemicals. Water pressure drops are not uncommon, it can happen while a crew repairs a broken water main or firefighters put out a nearby fire.

We Can Help Protect You & Your Family

At Bob Hamilton, we are specialists in backflow prevention and we can perform an evaluation to determine which backflow prevention device is best for your home’s plumbing system.

Once our skilled plumber has installed the backflow prevention device in your home, water will be unable to flow back into the public water pipes. The backflow prevention device creates a closed plumbing system, keeping the water you and your family uses for cooking, bathing and drinking from becoming contaminated with bacteria, chemicals, and harmful toxins.

Do the smart thing . . . have Bob Hamilton Plumbing, Heating, A/C & Rooter install a backflow prevention device today!

Water Heater Maintenance

Over time, water heaters accumulate rust and sediment that reduce their ability to heat water. Eventually, an unmaintained water heater will operate inefficiently and potentially be damaged beyond repair. This is especially true if you have hard water in your home. To prevent the premature failure of your water heater, call Bob Hamilton Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning for annual water heater maintenance.

If you prefer to perform this maintenance yourself, there are a few steps you can take to keep your tankless or conventional water heater in good working condition. For instructions on water heater maintenance, read our water heater maintenance blog article on water heater maintenance.

Tankless Water Heater Maintenance

Tankless water heaters are growing in popularity. Although they don’t have a tank, they have filters and lines that require regular maintenance to keep them working reliably. Since tankless water heaters are more complex and are more easily damaged if not serviced correctly, we recommend having an experienced plumbing technician from Bob Hamilton Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning service your tankless water heater.
