How Your Business Could Benefit From a Backflow Prevention Device
For businesses, investing in a backflow prevention device is a proactive measure in protecting both employees and customers from potential water contamination. Backflow incidents can lead to severe health hazards and regulatory compliance issues. By installing a reliable device, you effectively combat the complications associated with back siphonage (negative pressure in your water distribution system from such things as water main leaks) and back pressure (when the pressure inside your plumbing exceeds the pressure in water distribution lines as a result of complications with boilers, chemical feed pumps, recirculating systems, and elevated tanks).
You may be required to install and routinely test a backflow preventer if you own or manage one of the following types of businesses:
- Restaurants and Food Service Establishments
- Medical Facilities
- Manufacturing Plants
- Hotels and Hospitality
- Commercial Office Buildings
- Car Washes
- Shopping Malls and Retail Centers
- Golf Courses and Athletic Facilities
When Should You Schedule Backflow Testing?
You must have a certified backflow tester inspect your device every year to ensure its ongoing functionality. We also recommend scheduling backflow testing with our technicians in Jacksonville, FL, whenever there is a significant change in your plumbing system, such as renovations, new installations, or repairs. Timely testing guarantees that your system adequately prevents water contamination.

How to Know If Your Backflow Preventer Is Broken

With that said, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the signs that may indicate a problem so you can request backflow services right away:
- Your backflow valve is leaking.
- The device has visible signs of rust and corrosion.
- The check valves are making abnormal noises.
- Your water has an unusual color, taste, or odor.
- Your water pressure has dropped significantly.
