Love your pipes and protect your home from messy and costly basement backups by installing or cleaning out an existing Backflow Preventer. A professional plumber can also do this for you, cleaning a Backflow Preventer will usually cost an hourly rate that the plumber sees fit. Older homes may not have a Backflow Preventer, installing a new one can cost between $800-$1000. Watch as Brian and Bob from NEW Water show you how to locate the Backflow Preventer and then how to clean it out. DISCLAIMER: Proper PPE (personal protective equipment) should be worn, and only experienced persons or trained professionals should try this. If in doubt, call a professional plumber to manage the process for you.
