What is a Backflow Preventer?

A backflow preventer is a device installed on water pipes to keep contaminants out of the water supply by allowing your water to flow in one direction.

Why is Testing Important?

All states require annual testing to prevent backflow where cross contamination could exist. A cross connection is a physical connection between a drinking water supply and any source of contamination. Contamination occurs when there is backflow, which happens when the water flow is reversed. Therefore, it is important to have your backflow preventer tested annually by a certified professional to ensure it is working properly.
