Why is Backflow Testing Important?
When buildings pull up water, it’s vital that this water is healthy and flowing in the right direction. Sometimes, when a device malfunctions, wastewater and contaminated water can enter into the clean water supply, from where a dangerous contamination can occur.
Plumbing systems have been created to use specific mechanisms to keep this from happening. Over time, this mechanism can fail, which is why it’s so crucial that you have your backflow devices tested regularly. The team at Daniels Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC has the skills, tools, and techniques necessary to carry out backflow testing successfully.
How Does Backflow Testing Work?
We work to test your backflow prevention mechanisms in a couple of ways:
Visually: Visual inspections can be carried out in some circumstances, but usually only if the device is located near ground level or is easily accessible for our plumbing technicians.
Calibration: This technique uses specific calibration equipment, which is necessary for some mechanism testing, especially in commercial spaces where the building must comply with local codes.
If your backflow prevention mechanism fails its inspection, we provide you with options on how to best solve the problem. We can repair the existing device, or completely replace the mechanism. Regardless of what is necessary, we’re ready to help you every step of the way.
