No matter what commercial property you own, a backflow device is essential. It prevents contaminated water from flowing through one system into your fresh water supply line. If this device should fail, serious consequences will occur. Polluted water will enter your drinking water, affecting the health and well-being of your customers and your employees.
That’s why it’s important to have your backflow preventer checked annually to make sure it’s in good working order and preventing any potential problems from occurring. All it takes is one phone call to Action Plumbing and we’ll take care of the rest.
WHAT IS BACKFLOW?
As clean water flows through the municipal water lines to your business, backflow removes the dirty water from your property. A backflow preventer is a device that prevents this polluted or contaminated water, such as pesticides, fertilizer, feces, and chemicals, from combining with lines that hold your water supply.
However, if something is wrong with the assembly, the backflow will not filter into the proper pipeline, causing cross-contamination with your potable water supply.
As you can imagine, this device is extremely important to have. If the preventer should fail, the backflow can easily enter into your clean water. For businesses, it’s not only crucial to have your backflow assembly certified each year, but it’s the law. Many municipalities throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware have laws stipulating that the backflow assembly receives annual testing for any weaknesses or issues.
IS ANNUAL BACKFLOW TESTING NECESSARY?
Like any piece of plumbing equipment, backflow preventers have parts that can break down and wear out over time. This is why it’s extremely important to have the backflow preventer inspected and certified every year to make sure everything is working properly and fix any problems before they become a serious issue.
The backflow testing process includes a mechanical check of the valves that keep the polluted water out in case of a significant water pressure change. If there is an issue with the valves, repairs should be made immediately.
