Protect Your Drinking Water With Backflow Prevention
A backflow device is designed to prevent contamination in your drinking water by keeping water flowing in one direction through your pipe system. Since contaminated drinking water is a safety concern, most city water utility companies require annual backflow testing to ensure your system is working properly. At Atlas Fire Protection, our professional technicians are trained to perform the required annual test to ensure your backflow system is code compliant and prevents water contamination.
During a backflow test, our technicians force water through the device to ensure that valves open and close correctly. They also check each component of the device for damage. Backflow prevention devices are made of metal, plastic, and rubber parts that may fail over time due to constant water pressure. If our technicians notice any damage or component failure during the inspection, they will notify you of the necessary repairs or replacements needed to ensure your system is fully operational.
