Backflow Prevention

All commercial buildings require a back-flow prevention device to be installed at each public potable water service entrance. The back-flow prevention devices are required by law to be tested annually to ensure cross contamination does not occur in the potable public water main.

What Is Backflow?

Back-flow occurs when water in your plumbing system becomes reversed, and flows back into the potable public water main. Contamination of the public potable water main can occur.
