Backflow testing is a simple procedure. We use digital equipment to help us identify problems with a backflow device so that we can determine if the device should be replaced, or if there are other problems on the line that will need to be addressed instead.
If you are not in compliance with testing and prevention regulations, then your municipal water supply may be turned off. This could be detrimental to many businesses, so we recommend you keep up with scheduled and required testing.
In addition to remaining in compliance, water backflow testing and inspection helps to keep you and your tenants/residents safe from potentially hazardous contaminants, such as sewage or chemical particulates.
Backflow testing is important because it ensures that there’s no contaminants that are making their way into your local water supply. Fortunately, the backflow testing process isn’t complicated and doesn’t take up a lot of your time. When you’re ready to have your backflow testing conducted, you can give the professional plumbers at Western Rooter & Plumbing a call.
Before we can begin the actual backflow testing process, we first need permission to enter your property and to shut off your water.
We’ll inspect the area around the backflow testing device and verify its location, serial number, model, and manufacturer. Once all of this is confirmed, we can begin the actual backflow testing process. This process involves the following steps:
During the backflow testing process, our team at Western Rooter & Plumbing will be inspecting the backflow device to ensure that the check valves are successfully preventing backflow, the air ports are opening correctly, and the relief valves open properly.
In the event that we find something wrong with your backflow device, our professional and experienced team will fix with problem quickly and efficiently. Backflow issues can lead to water contamination and it’s crucial to return your backflow device back to its original working condition.
