Backflow represents a serious problem with severe consequences for your health. Backflow occurs when the flow within your plumbing reverses. Instead of waste traveling out of your pipes, it begins to flow inward. When you turn on your faucet, you will receive water contaminated with any number of pollutants. Sometimes, the contaminants will enter as trace amounts. When this occurs, you may not even realize you’re drinking polluted water. To prevent this distasteful problem, schedule backflow testing in West Los Angeles, CA from the experts at Sunset West Plumbing & Rooter Inc..
