Following a change in pressure, caused by events like a fire hydrant usage or pipe bursting, backflow occurs when water flows backward into the main water supply line. This can unfortunately cause contamination in the main water supply from human waste, pesticides, or other chemicals. Backflow prevention devices make sure this never happens by only allowing water to flow in one direction.
We install, test, and maintain backflow prevention devices placed on both commercial and residential water supply lines to ensure there is no cross contamination.
We perform backflow testing to ensure that:
- The relief valves open when they should
- The air ports in the backflow device open properly
- The check valves are working to prevent backflow
To save you time, we will submit all necessary paperwork after completion and email you a copy of the sent report, so you don't have to!
