Why Is Backflow Device Testing Necessary?
Your backflow device plays an essential role in keeping water flowing in one direction. Although water pressure takes care of water flow, fluctuations are frequent occurrences due to reasons beyond your control. The problem starts once your pipes and drains “suck in” the water rather than push it out.
When your drains pull in water, pollutants, dirt, and contaminants can enter your water supply. Your once-potable water becomes a health hazard, which may contain chemicals or waste that will harm people and cause sickness.
If you notice that your water quality isn’t the same, it may be a sign of contamination. The typical warning signs to observe is a change in taste, water, and odor. Be aware of pressure changes in your drains, especially in multiple locations throughout your property.
If it’s time for an annual backflow device testing checkup, contact our team for fast and high-quality service.
The Dangers of Contamination
There is a reason why backflow testing and repair is a legal requirement in Maryland. When the water pressure starts to suction, dirty water enters your system with pollutants such as:
- Sewage and biohazardous waste
- Chemicals from pools or companies
- Scum from soap and shampoo residue
- Dirt and soil
Keeping your backflow device in top shape is critical, especially when contamination comes from sewage and chemicals. Failing to maintain and inspect your backflow device is not just a health risk—it’s also a legal issue.
In Maryland, it is a legal requirement of commercial property owners to perform an annual inspection of their backflow device and repair it if necessary. The repairs must be completed by a professional company with specific licensing requirements. At Prime Plumbing, our crews have the qualifications to perform an inspection, repair, or replace your backflow device.
