Backflow Testing

What is Backflow Testing?

Backflow testing is necessary to make sure that the drinking water in your home has not been contaminated by dirty water infiltrating your water supply.  This can happen when an unexpected drop in water pressure occurs (such as freezing pipes or busted pipes).  When this happens contaminated water can enter the freshwater supply.


Installing a backflow preventer in your home is a wise decision that can protect your water supply from contamination. This mechanical device effectively restricts the water flow, ensuring that water flows only into your home and not in the opposite direction.

Maintaining the purity and safety of the water you consume is a crucial aspect of ensuring the well-being of yourself and those around you. In order to achieve this, preventing backflow is a reliable and efficient approach. By implementing measures to prevent the backward flow of contaminated water into the clean water supply, you can rest assured that the water you drink is free from harmful contaminants and safe for consumption.
