What is Backflow?
Backflow is unintended water flow reversal resulting in potential contamination. This contamination can come from any device connected to your water system. This may be equipment, fire suppression systems, mechanical devices, and even lawn irrigation systems on your property. Backflow prevention devices are designed to keep potable water safe from these contaminants.
Installing Backflow Prevention Devices for Kansas City
Backflow prevention devices are installed to keep your water clean. Backflow devices consist of a pair of mechanical check valves used to prevent dirty water from backflowing into your clean water supply. A-1 Sewer & Septic Service can professionally install and maintain this system so that you can drink your water worry-free.
While backflow devices may not be mandatory in your home, they are required by law to be installed for plumbing systems in apartments, condominiums, food establishments, and most public and commercial locations. It is important to have the backflow properly and professionally installed, maintained, and tested by A-1 Sewer & Septic Service.
A-1 Sewer & Septic Service, Inc. Assists with Annual Backflow Testing
Once your backflow system is installed, blocking dirt and other contaminants, the city will require an annual inspection to ensure it is performing properly. We will also make sure that your device is up to local plumbing code. A-1 Sewer and Septic will even file the paperwork with the proper jurisdiction, saving you time. If your device is not properly functioning, don’t worry! A-1 Sewer & Septic Service, Inc. will make any necessary repairs and have your device retested. If you fail to have tests performed as required, you can be subjected to interruptions of your clean water services and may be fined.
