Each year, every business must have their backflow prevention equipment or assemblies inspected and tested by a certified backflow prevention tester. Inspection should be done at installation and once a year afterwards. If hazards or violations exist, municipality water departments will deny or immediately discontinue service until the business or resident has corrected the issue. Each municipality has specific criteria that needs to be met during the testing process.
We test assemblies to verify if they are operational and will prevent backflow from occurring should conditions exist to cause it. Should they fail minimum required standards for testing, we can repair or replace them as necessary.

Let's say you fail the backflow preventer test. What now? Do you repair the assembly or do you replace it? That depends. There are several variables in making that decision, but here are some things to consider. How old is the assembly? Are the repair parts readily available? Is it less expensive for you to replace rather than repair? How difficult will the repair be? Is it simply time to update the assembly? What material is the backflow assembly made from? What does the county or city watershed management require?
Backflow prevention assembly repair can be many different things. Our technicians will guide you towards the solution that works best for you and your wallet.
For new construction or when a new device is required on an existing property, assemblies must be installed according to municipality specifications. Usually the information needed by the municipality includes the make, model, size, and serial number. The location of the backflow prevention device will need to be provided as well (i.e. looking from the street, left side of house next to AC).
New construction can be a big undertaking. Let us make backflow assembly installation and any other plumbing needs you have turnkey.
