Backflow Preventer Inspection for BUSINESS

Annual service-inspections | rentals | rebuilds | install

All commercial buildings are required to have a backflow preventer device installed onto their irrigation system. The reason being is to protect the public water supply from any type of contamination that can get into the water system from the forward-flowing water turning on itself and flowing backward, which can be caused by an array of scenarios. 

 

Guard your business against being at fault and protect your city’s water supply.

Why Get Backflow Preventer Inspection?

A backflow preventer inspection ensures that your backflow device is working correctly and is protecting your property from potential water damage.

 

Backflow preventers help to prevent water from flowing back into your water supply, and by having it inspected regularly, you can be sure that it is working properly in its normal and intended direction.

 

The inspection also boosts the protection of your commercial properties from potential damage. Back pressure occurs when the downstream pressure exceeds the supply pressure in a piping system, causing the flow direction to reverse.

 

When the backflow preventer installed is not correct, back siphonage may occur, which may lead to water contamination. 

 

Back siphonage is a backflow caused by negative pressure in a property’s potable water system. The backflow prevention inspector has to check and do necessary repairs and maintenance to the backflow devices, including the valves and the air gap, to ensure the proper operation of your system. 

 

B&W Fire Security Systems offer backflow preventer inspections for residential and commercial properties. Our team provides professional inspection and maintenance on air gaps, double-check valves, and pressure vacuum breakers to prevent backflow and potable water contamination.

What Should You Expect During A Backflow Preventer Inspection?

The inspection and testing have three primary goals: to identify potential back pressure problems, restore the normal flow of potable water supply, and prevent these issues from recurring in the future.

 

Aside from testing the backflow preventers, including the double check valve, the inspector will also check if the contaminated water in your irrigation system has reached any undesirable areas. 

 

The water supply is briefly turned on to check if the water flows correctly and if there are any leaks.

All the valves of your backflow device, such as pressures, relief, and air, are assessed if they are working within the prescribed operational timing.

Installing a backflow prevention device not only protects your water supply but also prevents contaminants from polluting the city water system.
