What is Backflow Testing?

This is the process of checking whether a plumbing system can prevent backflow. “Backflow” happens when contaminated water reverses, flowing back into the drinking water supply.

Backflow testing ensures that a building's plumbing system complies with local and state regulations, and it keeps the community's water supply safe. The process usually involves shutting off the water supply, installing a backflow preventer valve, and running a series of tests to check the valve's effectiveness.

Such testing is crucial for preventing health hazards and protecting water supplies. Typically, backflow checks are required annually for commercial and industrial buildings.

What Are the Benefits of Backflow Testing?

Backflow testing ensures the safety of our drinking water. Specifically, backflow is the undesirable reversal of water flow in a sewage system. Tainted water moves in the wrong direction, contaminating the public water supply with pollutants and other harmful substances.

Regular testing detects potential issues in the plumbing system, identifying the presence of cross-connections that can cause backflow.

Backflow testing protects the health and safety of the community, and it helps prevent unexpected leaks or flooding. This protection maintains a property’s aesthetic value and a plumbing system’s functionality.
