Other ServicesThermal Expansion Tanks
In recent years, community water suppliers began installing check valves on water lines going into each home and business. The check valve is a one way valve to allow water to enter your home, but not allow possibly contaminated water to flow back into the water main. When water is heated (such as in your home's water heater), it expands. This phenomenon is known as thermal expansion. Because the expanded water is not allowed to flow back into the main, it will build up excessive pressure in your home's water distribution system. This will, over time, damage faucets, water heaters, and other fixtures. To remedy this, a thermal expansion tank is installed near the water heater. Thermal expansion tanks are required by many municipalities in new construction.
Properly installed and operating backflow prevention devices are important to keeping our drinking water free of contaminants. Backflow preventers help to eliminate the cross connection between the drinking water supply and possible contaminated water sources. Backflow preventers must be tested annually and the necessary EPA paper work needs to be submitted to the proper water authority. Let Maxson Services help you with your backflow preventer testing and documentation.
