However, these mechanisms will break down over time and cease to function correctly.

The Importance of Backflow Prevention

As buildings generate wastewater, these substances must be handled correctly. As this wastewater flows out of a building, it is supposed to follow the correct direction of the piping. However, malfunctioning pipes or storms may disrupt this flow of wastewater into the clean water supply, creating a dangerous contamination problem.

To prevent this from happening, plumbing systems have been designed to use certain mechanisms. Most of these mechanisms fail over time, which is why having them tested on a regular basis is of the utmost importance. Many communities in the United States mandate that these backflow systems be tested and certified by an experienced and professional plumbing team. The team at Erica’s Plumbing & Restoration has the necessary training to perform these tests.

What is the Backflow Testing Process?

There are a variety of methods available to test your backflow prevention mechanism. At Erica’s Plumbing & Restoration, we offer a variety of inspection methods based on your specific needs.

We can test your backflow prevention device in the following ways:

  • Visually – Sometimes, visual inspections can be carried out, especially if the device is located near the surface, or if it is easily accessible for the plumber.
  • Calibration – Some devices need to be tested using precise calibration equipment. This is especially true for property owners who must make sure that their system is in compliance with mandates. This technique also provides information about basic repairs that need to be completed.

If your backflow prevention device fails the initial inspection, our team will give you options moving forward. The existing device could be replaced, especially if the damage is small. The seals on the mechanism can be renewed and new parts can be added on. For other cases, a whole new device will need to be installed. No matter the route you take, you’ll have to work with qualified, experienced plumbing professionals during our backflow testing services in Boca Raton.
