City water lines carry clean water to residential and commercial properties in Northern Virginia. Backflow is the flow of the dirty/contaminated water out of commercial and residential properties. Backflow prevention is important because dirty water is filled with chemicals, feces, and other hazardous substances that are dangerous to your health. Backflow happens at cross-connections between potable (safe to drink) and non-potable water in residential and commercial water systems.
Most cities in Northern Virginia require a backflow prevention device to be installed at the cross-connection point in residential and commercial plumbing systems.There are different types of backflow prevention devices that we can install, depending on the type of waste flowing from the property and plumbing system.
Backflow Prevention Devices
Backflow prevention devices are made of a pair of check valves that stop dirty water from moving back into the supply of clean water if there’s ever a big change in water pressure. Backflow prevention devices have to be installed by professionals to keep the water coming through your faucets clean, safe, and contamination free.
Annual Backflow Testing
You need to have your backflow valves inspected yearly to make sure that they’re operating correctly and are up to code. Failing to get backflow testing done can result in fines from the city, and even more importantly, contamination of your clean water.
