A backflow preventer works to rid your water of contamination by detecting a decrease in water pressure which will trigger the valve to open and drop the water before it comes into your home. And an decrease in water pressure could be due to a water leak, hydrant flushing or a city water main break among many other things.
Backflow preventers also protect the city’s water supply from contaminated water due to a back-up in irrigation systems, boilers, or fire suppression systems. Additionally, contaminations could come from stagnant water or chemicals used in irrigation systems.
Our goal is to keep your water supply clean and safe. We recommend annual RPZ testing to assure that the water coming into your home has not been exposed to contaminants. We also work hard to save you time and money. In the case that your backflow preventer fails the test, we will discuss the best repair options for you and your budget.
