At Morton Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we offer experienced backflow preventer device installation and repair to alleviate any water backflow issues you may have and ensure your Nashville supply is safe for the public.

What is Backflow?

Backflow is the reversal of the direction of water due to a difference in water pressures. Water distribution systems are designed for water to flow in one direction, from the distribution system to the water consumer. However, hydraulic conditions within the system may deviate from the “normal” conditions, causing water to flow in the opposite direction. Water in unprotected systems can often flow backward—from the consumer to the distribution system—risking the safety of the water supply and potentially causing a hazardous condition.

Proper backflow prevention and cross connection control is vital to the protection of your water supply. Morton Plumbing of Nashville can install backflow preventers to protect your internal water supply.

How Can Water Backflow Be Prevented?

Morton Plumbing, Heating & Cooling utilizes four methods of backflow prevention for our commercial customers:

  • Air Gap
  • Double Check Valve Device
  • Reduced Pressure Backflow Device
  • Vacuum Breaker Assembly

Our Plumbers will determine which type of protection is required based on the degree of hazard to your water supply.
