One of the things that we can so easily take for granted is our access to clean water. Anywhere we go, in the U.S., we have access to it. Clean water comes from every faucet, water fountain, and shower that we will use. That is not the case for millions of people in the world. But it has become a fact of life for us. We have expectations that regardless of where you are, you will have access to clean water. To ensure that those expectations are met, many establishments must have backflow devices installed, maintained and certified each year.
When everything is in working order, water flows through pipelines into homes and businesses. Backflow occurs when there is a depressurizing causing a reverse of dirty water flow, and it can contaminate our clean drinking water. Contaminated water can contain feces, hazardous materials, pesticides or chemicals; all of which are very harmful to your health if ingested. Backflow prevention devices are installed to ensure that if there are any issues your clean drinking water stays safe for ingestion. Law requires that backflow devices are tested annually to make sure that they are working properly. Especially if you run a commercial business or have a commercial property you want to ensure that everyone that comes in contact with water at your establishment will be safe. You may also incur a fine if your backflow device is not certified in a timely manner. If you have a backflow device that needs to be tested or are looking into installing these devices, we would love to help you.
