Sump Pumps

Additionally, we provide complete repair and installation of sump pumps. Talk to our staff about your plumbing problem, and contact us for an estimate if you notice any of the following problems:

Backflow Testing

The other type of water you want to get out of your home is referred to as “backflow.” Backflow is when sanitary water gets mixed with wastewater that should have been drained from your home. More specifically, it’s the reversal of the flow of water through a cross connection due to backpressure or backsiphonage. This causes a contaminated water supply that could make the people at your home very ill. Swift Plumbing provides backflow testing services to ensure you have a safe water supply and drainage for the wastewater.

We can even install a backflow prevention device that protects against these unsanitary mixtures in your water supply. However, you will need to have your backflow prevention device checked routinely to ensure that it’s working.
