Voted Best Knoxville Backflow Preventer Services

Every home has a communal water line that is attached to its home in Knoxville. This shared line allows water to flow into and out of the home. But, with communal water, comes communal contamination. This is one of the many reasons you should consider the installation of a Knoxville Backflow Preventer on your property. Hero Services, Knoxville, Tennessee, can install a backflow preventer as a licensed, bonded, and insured contractor in the local market. But, what exactly does the preventer do, and is it legally required?

Requirements & Knoxville Backflow Preventer Function

For starters, no, it is not legally required for all homeowners to install a Knoxville Backflow Preventer on their property. However, specific municipal codes, ordinances, or even some HOAs might require a homeowner to have one. So, it’s essential to know what the local requirements are where you live, to ensure your home and property in Knoxville are in compliance with local requirements.

Now that we got the legal obligations out of the way, what is a backflow preventer, and what does it do? As highlighted above, your water line on your property in Knoxville is in a shared, communal pool. This means all water in the local area is flowing in and out of the pool, as is the water on your home/property in Knoxville. This allows pollution to flow back into that pool, meaning you might be bathing, washing dishes with, and drinking that polluted water. The installation of a Knoxville Backflow Preventer can help prevent this. As the name indicates, the preventer is used to help

  • Treat portable water supplies in your home in Knoxville
  • Prevent pollution from making its way into the portable lines
  • Protect your home’s water sources in Knoxville
  • Help prevent contaminants from making their way back onto your property in Knoxville, so the water your family is drinking and using is as clean as possible.

Another way a Knoxville Backflow Preventer is beneficial is that it prevents the backflow of water on your property in Knoxville. Due to the communal pool of shared water, water pressure levels are going to fluctuate due to the usage and consumption in other homes in that communal pool. So, even if you control your water use, it doesn’t mean other homes are. You are sharing a water source, meaning you are only getting as much pressure as is available, at any given time, based upon the total number of homes, and how much water those homes in Knoxville are using.

When backflow occurs, there are a number of problems, in addition to the pollutants and contaminants making their way into your water line in your home in Knoxville. The backflow is not desirable, nor is it the healthiest of drinking water for you and your family.

What’s the solution?

  • Step one is to call our team at Hero Services to visit your home in Knoxville. We will
  • Assess and address the communal pool concern
  • We will review your home’s water lines, piping, and all plumbing work in Knoxville
  • Determine how polluted the water sources are and where pollutants are coming from
  • Discuss what a Knoxville Backflow Preventer can do, why it should be installed, and we can install it on your property in Knoxville if you choose to do so 

Not only will this instantly set your water lines apart from the communal pool, but you also know that the water source you’re using isn’t shared. So, the water lines are clean, and the water that’s flowing into and out of your home in Knoxville is clean. The valve will allow water to flow smoothly, it won’t run through a shared water line, and this will also eliminate or significantly reduce the water pressure issues and concerns you might have been dealing with as well on your property in Knoxville. 

If you aren’t sure how clean your water is, give us a call so we can visit your property in Knoxville and perform an inspection on site. Doing this will allow us to get a better picture of the communal pool, and also inform you about the options we can offer, including the installation of a new Knoxville Backflow Preventer. This is the first step in cleaning up your water lines and water sources for your family. So, give our Knoxville team a call so we can schedule a consultation, and send one of our licensed techs to your home in Knoxville, to provide you with a quote for the installation services on your property in Knoxville, Tennessee.

    Chris and Dekota are a great team. They are friendly and knowledgeable. Chris went the extra mile to return to our new place when we put in a call late on Friday night. He was able to come right out and assess the simple fix to get our heat up and running.

Plumbing FAQs

Pipe corrosion can be caused by a number of things, almost all of which are related to water quality, including:

  • Chemicals in the water
  • The pH of the water
  • The amount of oxygen in the water
  • The temperature of the water
  • The water pressure and the speed at which the water moves through the pipes.

If you think you have a leak in your home, there’s an easy way you can check. Go out to your water meter and record the level. Make sure no one uses any water for a few hours, then go back and check the meter again (it’s easiest to do this when everyone goes to bed, then check it again first thing in the morning). If the level has changed, you probably have a leak – call Hero Services to have it taken care of right away!

Yes! Not only do leaks get larger with age (see above) but they can also potentially cause damage to your home. Leak detection and repair offers a number of other benefits, including:

  • Reduced or eliminated water loss
  • Reduced risk of damage associated with leaks
  • Reduced need for emergency repairs
  • Reduced need for water treatment and pressurization

Yes. Water leaking out of your pipes or fixtures will eventually cause enough corrosion that even a pinhole-sized leak can eventually grow and potentially cause damage to your home.

Most faucets can be cleaned with a damp, soft cloth. If you just installed new faucets, you may want to find out if the manufacturer has any recommended cleaning solutions for more stubborn stains. Make sure to avoid any abrasive cleaners or pads – these may scratch the surface and finish of your faucet.
