Why You Need A Backflow Preventer
A backflow preventer is a mechanism designed to protect the public water supply from cross-contamination. Cross-contamination occurs when a water supply line is connected to equipment containing a substance that is unsafe to drink. These types of connections are called cross connections and they’re dangerous if no protective measures are taken.
Outside water hookups, irrigation systems and garden hoses tend to be the most common sources of cross-connection contamination in residential spaces. Garden hoses create a hazard when submerged in a swimming pool or when attached to a chemical sprayer for weed control. A backflow preventer stops the flow of this potentially contaminated water back through the piping to keep the public water supply safe for consumption.
Efficient Backflow Testing In Maui
A backflow preventer test involves our technicians using a set of valves on the backflow testing device, known as gate and relief valves. During a backflow test, our plumbers close specific valves and check for changes in the gauges, leaks and other signs of damage. There are specific criteria that need to be met during the testing process. For instance, our team ensures your backflow check valves are operational, the air ports function correctly and the relief valves open at the correct pressure.
With all of the technical details involved, it’s clear why Maui homeowners should have their backflow test performed by professional plumbers. If it’s time for your backflow test, turn to the team at All Aloha Plumbing. Reach out to us today!

Backflow Replacement For Your Maui Home
Backflow preventers weren’t designed to work efficiently forever. Over time, the assembly’s performance deteriorates, eventually rendering your backflow preventer useless. If your backflow preventer fails, you could be at risk of cross-contaminating the local water supply.
A backflow preventer can function well for years, provided it receives routine inspections and tune-ups. But the combination of age, water quality, excessive pressure and temperature can affect the performance of your backflow preventer. If you find yourself investing in frequent repairs, it may be time for a replacement. Reach out to our team for more information or to schedule your replacement today.
