A sudden drop in water pressure can cause water to back up into a plumbing pipe. The best way to prevent a backflow problem is to have a backflow preventer installed. A plumber will need to check a backflow preventer regularly and perform any maintenance that is required. This is needed to prevent water from backing up into a home and making people sick.
Why Test My Backflow Preventer?
A backflow testing device is mechanical and has many moving parts. There are various internal seals, springs, and other parts that have the potential to fail. Parts may fail unexpectedly because of excessive wear, fouling, and even general fatigue. A homeowner is generally responsible for having a device regularly tested. A letter may be sent to homeowners from their municipality indicating that a backflow prevention device is due for testing. Contact a local plumber who is certified to test these devices.
The Importance of Regular Testing
The safety of people in a home is the main reason to have regular testing of backflow preventer. This is needed at least once per year. A backflow preventer has test ports that are used to ensure that the device is working correctly. Testing these devices needs to be done by a licensed plumber who is familiar with the local plumbing codes. The unit will be tested once when it is installed and once per year the device is in use. The failure to have regular testing of a backflow prevention device may result in water service being discontinued for a home.
