If you are a property manager or oversee the maintenance of a facility, chances are your property already has a backflow prevention device installed. Sometimes known as a cross-connection control device, a backflow preventer is a safety device that protects your domestic water system from contamination and pollution. If the pressure falls due to a broken pipe or other issues, potentially harmful contaminants could be sucked into the clean drinking water supply, which could cause major issues; therefore, the device should be inspected on an annual basis. Your backflow contains test cocks and shut-off valves designed specifically for the purpose of regular maintenance.
Only companies and technicians certified in backflow prevention and repair should be working on your backflow preventer.
If you need a backflow preventer tested, repaired, replaced or a quote on a new installation, Continuum Services can help. Continuum’s plumbers are fully certified to test and repair backflow preventers and are glad to answer any questions about backflow prevention and certification.
