Backflow Prevention

Backflow Prevention Device Installation

Backflow is the flow of water in a reverse direction.  This can be especially troublesome for plumbing systems dealing with sewage or contaminated waste water.  Federal law requires the installation of a backflow prevention device in situations where backflow is possible.  This would include backflow from irrigation systems, fire supply lines, beverage machines, sewer lines, and more.  These devices must also be tested at least once per year by a professional plumber.

Backflow Prevention Device Testing

Your backflow prevention device is mechanical device, they can degrade and break-down over time.  Inside the backflow preventer there are internal seals, springs, and other moving parts that can wear with constant use.  In order to remain compliant your backflow prevention device must be tested to ensure that it is doing it’s job.  A backflow device that isn’t working correctly runs the risk of contaminating your potable water supplies and creating situations where contaminated water can cause a health risk.
