WHAT IS BACKFLOW?
A backflow preventer is a device that prevents polluted or contaminated water from flowing from one system into the freshwater supply line. Dirty backflow can include sewage, chemicals, fertilizer, and pesticides, all of which can cause serious health issues to your customers, your employees, and you if found in your clean water.
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, causing serious illness to your customers, your employees, and yourself. That’s why Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware all have laws stipulating that the backflow assembly be tested on annual basis for any weaknesses or issues.
BUT, IS BACKFLOW TESTING NECESSARY?
Like any piece of plumbing equipment, backflow preventers have parts that can break down and wear out over time, much like a car. This is why it’s extremely important to check your backflow 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.
