Backflow testing isn’t just important for safety reasons–it’s the law. If you have a backflow prevention device on your property, it’s important to have it properly maintained and tested on a regular basis. Splash Plumbing offers professional backflow testing in Orange County and nearby areas so you never have to worry about sewage contaminating your drinking water or re-entering your home. Whether you’re in need of backflow repair, installation, testing, or maintenance, Splash Plumbing is your first choice.
Backflow is just what it sounds like – it’s when water flows backward into your home rather than away from it. This can create hazardous situations within your home or commercial building, hence why having a backflow prevention device is so important.
A backflow prevention device works in such a way that it allows water to flow in one direction only, preventing it from flowing backwards and contaminating your water. Essentially, your backflow device creates a closed plumbing system via the use of a relief valve, check valves, and other straightforward plumbing equipment that together creates an extremely important device. Your backflow system must be properly inspected and maintained, however, to ensure that it is functioning properly.
Just because you have a backflow prevention device installed doesn’t mean that it is working properly. You need to invest in regular backflow testing for your Orange County home or business. Our technicians at Splash Plumbing are trained and certified to provide backflow testing to make sure that your drinking water is clean and your unit is doing its job right. We’ll check your water for hazardous materials, such as the following:
If large amounts of any of the above are present in your drinking water, it could be a sign that your backflow prevention device is not working properly.
In Southern California, many cities require that commercial properties have a backflow prevention device installed and that backflow testing be performed. Why? This is the best way to ensure that public drinking water is not contaminated. Most cities require annual backflow testing, if not more frequent testing depending on the location and the specific industry.
For residential customers, backflow devices must only be installed in certain circumstances. If your plumbing system is connected to one of the following devices, you’ll likely be required to have a backflow device installed as well:
In the event that we find that your drinking water is contaminated or that your backflow device is not functioning properly, we can perform backflow repairs. Backflow repair should only be performed by a certified technician, since these systems are delicate and can have disastrous consequences if not properly repaired.
