Why is Backflow Testing Important?

Backflow preventers are one of the most important aspects of your home or buildings plumbing system, as it is designed to prevent dirty or contaminated water from entering your clean water supply. These devices are installed on all new and renovated buildings for both residential and commercial spaces and should be serviced annually. You will also find backflow devices installed on any property with an irrigation system, fire suppression system, or large boiler.

Signs of Backflow in Residential and Commercial Properties

Typically, your potable water supply maintains enough pressure to allow clean water to easily flow from the source to the tap, shower, or other appliances. However, when there is a significant drop in water pressure, wastewater may be siphoned back through the pipes into your water system, contaminating your water with sewage, pesticides, and other toxins.

Here are some signs you may be experiencing a backflow issue:

  • Discolored water that is brown, yellow, or pinkish in tone
  • Frozen or broken pipes causing slow or stopped water flow
  • Rust flakes or other sediments in your water
  • Sulfur, or rotten egg, smell and/or taste
  • Slow draining or increased water level in sinks, toilets, or sewer
