Irrigation Systems.

What is Backflow & Why Is A Protection Device Necessary?

Backflow is the unwanted reverse flow of liquids in a piping system.The usual causes of reverse flow are back-pressure and/or back-siphonage. A backflow prevention device has internal,one way,spring loaded valves that allow water to flow through the device but seal under backpressure.

In irrigation systems this prevents the possibility of contaminated water sitting in the irrigation piping  from back siphoning,past your main water connection,into your drinking supply.




There are many benefits related to the installation of an irrigation system in residential or commercial landscape. By installing an automatic irrigation system that best suits your needs, you will be saving time and money. When you water by hand more than 50% of the water is wasted in runoff and evaporation.

Automatic irrigation systems can be programmed to run at night when evaporation is low in times of water restrictions. Strata communities who install irrigation systems will benefit greatly, but the environment will also benefit. This is so important that everyone play his or her part in the conservation of this precious resource
