Backflow Preventer Certifications

Backflow Preventer Certifications:  Installations, Testing, Repairs & Maintenance

Backflow prevention devices are designed to protect your drinking water along with the public water supply from becoming contaminated due to backward water flow. When water flow reverses, contaminated water can siphon from a hose, pool or irrigation system into the  water supply. This nonpotable water from the hose or pool then mixes with clean drinking water and can introduce bacteria into the water. People drinking the contaminated water could get sick.

Many municipalities are requiring certifications annually with fines for nonconformance.

Backflow devices include Reduced Pressure Zones (RPZ), RPZ valves and double check valves. This type of device is installed in your plumbing system to protect your drinking water and the city water supply from contaminants.
