Backflow Testing Pittsburgh

A backflow issue is caused when water moves backward through the pipes contaminating the drinking water system. Common cross-contaminate points are hot tubes, swimming pools, and lawn sprinkler systems. Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can install and repair various types of backflow prevention. Our backflow prevention plumbers have certifications to perform tests for residential and commercial properties in the Pittsburgh area.

Call Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing at (412) 793-3190 today!

What is "Backflow"?

Water used in residential and commercial spaces, such as plumbing, irrigation systems, or fire protection, should only flow into the property in a single direction. A sudden pressure change can affect the main supply line causing water to trickle back in. For example, if a sudden change occurs, such as a water main break or a nearby fire hydrant is in use, the system may lose pressure. The reduction in pressure in the pipeline no longer pushes water into the property in one direction. However, when water flows in the opposite direction, the water can contaminate the main water supply. Backflow is hazardous because it can contaminate public drinking water with impurities like fertilizers, pesticides, human waste, and toxic chemicals.

How is a Backflow Test Done?

The backflow test is performed to investigate if backflow particles are present in the current system so that the cause can be determined to repair the issue. A certified plumber from Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing will begin by inspecting the system's pressure by attaching the backflow testing gauge, otherwise known as gate and relief valves. The plumber will close the downstream valve and wait a few minutes before checking for changes in the direction of movement of the pressure gauge and simultaneously checking for water leaks and other apparent signs by closing different valves.

Local Pittsburgh Backflow Prevention Service

If you fall into the category of annual backflow prevention inspection, be sure to connect with a licensed professional who is trained to perform the inspection. Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is a licensed Pittsburgh, PA company that will inspect residential and commercial backflow systems.

What causes Damage to a waterline?

In older homes in the Pittsburgh area, the original plumbing pipes have experienced years of wear and tear. There are various reasons for damage to waterlines other than normal wear and tear issues.

  • Old Pipes - Corrode over time and begin to leak
  • Invasive Tree Roots - Tree root growth can cause issues with your water line
  • Clogs and Blockages - A build-up of pressure can cause leaks from clogged pipes that were not addressed quickly

Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing offers residential and commercial sewer line repairs in the Pittsburgh area, including 24/7 emergency service.

If your sewer line is clogged, you may be:

  • Smelling raw sewage near the drain in the bathroom and kitchen or any area that has a drain.
  • Seeing water backing up in around a drain in the floor, or your sink, toilet, dishwasher or washing machine.
  • Hearing unusual sounds coming from your drains, as though something is caught and the water is gurgling.

If you are experiencing any of these signs, call Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing at 412-793-3190. Our family-owned and -operated business has over 40 years of experience when it comes to unclogging pipes.

What Causes Sewer Line Clogs?

Tree roots

If you have trees in your yard, the root system will spread out more and more each year, likely running through your pipes.

Old pipes

If your home is older, your pipes will begin to corrode or disintegrate at some point.

Flushing "unflushable" products

If paper towels or personal care products are being flushed down the toilet, they will become stuck in the pipes and cause a backup.

Hair and grease

Hair that goes down the shower drain and grease from cooking can both cause blockages.

Advanced Technology for Sewer Line Repairs

At Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we use high-quality equipment that is not only accurate but will save you a great deal of money. We use a sewer camera that we thread into your sewer line and show us exactly what is causing the blockage. This allows us to evaluate the clog so that we can quickly fix it.

Instead of bringing in a large piece of equipment that will tear up your yard, the sewer camera will give us answers quickly and will keep your yard intact. To schedule an appointment, please fill out our online form.

Cleaning, Repairing and Unclogging Drains

Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can complete any residential or commercial drain line repairs and cleaning. We only complete repair work using experienced, licensed plumbers who use professional equipment that meets our standards.

Your drains can become clogged over years of use. Hair, grease, small objects and soap can become lodged in your pipes, causing blockages that can threaten spillover or even flooding. The most common drains that need servicing are:

  • Bathroom sink, bathtub and shower drains – A lot of hair and personal care products (soap, shampoo, body wash) can go down your drains and cause a backup.
  • Toilet drains – When people flush paper towels, personal care products, wipes, or tissues, that can cause a blockage and make your toilet — and all of its contents — back up and flow out onto your bathroom floor.
  • Kitchen drains – It’s very common to have drain problems that come from food, grease and particles going down into the kitchen pipes and becoming clogged.
  • Floor drains – If you have a drain in your garage, basement, laundry room or driveway, it can become clogged and back up on your home’s lowest level.

If any of your drains are backing up, or if you smell a sewage odor, call Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing at (412) 793-3190 right away! We're available for 24-hour emergency drain services.

A video camera is snaked into your pipes, giving us a clear picture of what problems may be occurring and how best to fix them. This allows us to find the problem without digging up the pipes in your yard or trying to gain access to the pipes in your home.

Pittsburgh's Hot Water Heater Specialists

Hot water heaters are used to heat water which flows through the sink, shower or laundry machine. It is used to generate heat as water flows through the building and can be adjusted to control the maximum temperature and regulate the flow of warm water to various taps.

This equipment requires little maintenance on the part of a user, and they are often stored in a utility closet out of sight and exposed to minimal risk of tampering or weather damage.

Call Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing at (412) 793-3190 for a FREE estimate on your new hot water heater. Financing options are available.

An Efficient Heating Solution

A major advantage of using hot water heaters is how efficient they are. Most are built to handle at least 30 gallons at a time, with some models built for over 100 gallons of capacity to assure that hot water is always flowing. They are built to generate warm water no matter the external temperature and remain effective throughout the cold seasons when appropriately installed.

Rheem Water Heaters

Here at Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we only install the best heating products. That is why we stand behind Rheem  brand water heaters. Rheem proudly offers some of the most efficient and high performing water heaters available today.Their water heaters are not sold at local retail centers, because of frequent corner-cutting installations.

All About Tankless Water Heaters

A tankless water heater heats the water as you need it instead of continually heating water that is stored in a tank. The system accesses your gas or electric heat system to provide warm water to sinks, showers or washing machines only when the user requests heated water.

This modern water heater technology is advanced enough to quickly generate warm water when requested, which means no more compromising on hot water usage. Call us today for a FREE estimate on a tankless water heater installation.

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

With a tankless heater, won’t run out of hot water just because someone took too long in the shower, unlike in a standard tank system. Though the initial investment is greater than that of a tank system, over time, the energy savings pay for themselves!

Tankless water heaters are more durable and efficient, typically lasting 5-10 years longer than your standard hot water tanks and their compact size saves you space. Another problem you avoid with a tankless system is the use of water that has been stored in a tank with accumulated rust and scale.

At Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, our top choices for tankless water heaters are from Rheem.

Rheem tankless water heaters "provide the comfort and convenience of having a continuous supply of hot water." Their gas models are perfect for homes with busy families, luxury bathrooms or vacation homes.

Gas line leaks

You have probably heard a lot about how dangerous gas line leaks can be. If you smell a sulfuric odor like rotten eggs coming from either inside or outside your home, it can be a gas leak.
