Backflow Prevention in Valparaiso
Keeping Your Water Clean
Your home’s plumbing flows in one direction, wherein water comes in from the water line and goes out to the sewer main. This single flow ensures you of clean water in and wastewater out. What happens when the water suddenly went in the opposite direction? This is what we call backflow. Backflow usually happens when backpressure or back-siphonage causes the water to change flow direction. This occurrence leads to water contamination and health risks. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to install a backflow preventer or assembly. Regional Plumbing, Heating & Air is your top resource for backflow prevention in Valparaiso or nearby.

Common Backflow Prevention Devices
The good news is most modern plumbing fixtures have built-in backflow protection. However, if you have in-ground irrigation, lawn sprinkler systems, or use hose bib and garden hose, Indiana regulations require you to have a backflow assembly.
Some of the backflow prevention devices we install include:
- Pressure vacuum breaker – This type of backflow preventer is the most common and inexpensive.
- Double check valves – The most reliable device for either underground or indoor installations.
- Reduce pressure zone assembly – The most complex preventer, RPZ protects you from both backpressure and back-siphonage.
- Atmospheric vacuum breaker – Simple and inexpensive, this type of preventer is also, unfortunately, the least effective.
All backflow prevention devices must also undergo regular inspections conducted by a licensed and certified plumbing company like Regional Plumbing, Heating & Air.
