What is the Purpose of Backflow Testing?

Backflow testing will test the backflow prevention device to ensure it is working properly. During backflow testing, each component will be checked to make sure they are operating correctly. It tests the backflow preventer device and assesses pressure levels to ensure water isn’t backflowing and contaminating the water supply. Backflow can contaminate the drinking water in a building, which could cause illness and disease. Backflow in your property can also make neighboring properties susceptible to backflow. 

How Often Do You Need Backflow Testing?

Backflow testing typically takes about twenty to thirty minutes to complete. It is an absolute necessity for commercial and residential plumbing systems to ensure dirty water does not enter the water supply. Residential testing should be performed at least once every three years, and commercial testing should be performed at least once a year. Backflow testing should be performed by a certified backflow prevention inspector or a professional plumber.
