Backflow Service

What is Backflow?
Backflow is the reverse movement of a normal water flow. This can result from a drop in the water pressure or from suction in the water supply caused by a break in the water distribution pipes. This may cause contaminants to flow into the drinking water supply.

Types of backflows and applications:
Most irrigation systems are required to have some type of reduced pressure principal (RPP) or pressure vacuum breaker (PVB) backflow device installed at the point of connection to potable water.

Most commercial properties are required to have a RPP backflow device installed at the point of connection to the water purveyor's supply.


Installation
All RPP and double check valve assembly (DCA) devices are required to be mounted 12" above grade, while PVB backflow devices are required to be mounted 12" above the highest head on the irrigation system.

It is recommended that all backflow devices be mounted on SCH80 piping.


We service all major brands of backflow devices:
-Watts
-Ames
-Wilkins Flowmatic
-Febco

When a backflow fails, it does not necessarily mean that the whole device has to be replaced. We carry most replacement parts and can rebuild the unit in most cases, saving our customers money.

Why do you need a backflow test?
Backflow preventers or devices have internal seals, check valves, springs and moving parts that will wear over time. These devices are required by law to be tested annually to ensure that they are in proper working order to protect the water supply.
