You have a lot to do for your business. The last worry should be whether or not the backflow prevention device is functional but it matters for the safety of your employees and customers.
We don’t want your business to stop because the water is contaminated (and the rancid smell is overwhelming) but that’s what happens when your backflow prevention device isn’t functioning properly.
What is backflow?
We often take for granted that we have clean water but we shouldn’t.
Clean water goes to us through the municipal water system where it is tested and verified as safe to enter our homes and businesses. When dirty water flows back into municipal, that’s called backflow and it’s a threat to our health.
Once clean water enters your building, it should stay that way but that’s not always the case. Contamination occurs when the backflow prevention device is in need of maintenance.
What is a backflow prevention device?
Backflow prevention devices keep the water in your business clean and free of contaminants like fertilizer or sewage.
The type of backflow prevention device your business needs depends on the requirements from the municipality and the type of business. Restaurants, apartment complexes, and office buildings each have codes requiring backflow mechanisms at points where municipal water enters the business.
You wouldn’t want food from a restaurant garbage disposal to enter the city water or fertilizer from landscaping to enter the drinking water. That’s why you need commercial backflow maintenance.
We’re committed to keeping your business clean and clear.
