What is Backflow Testing?

Backflow testing is a process that is used to test your plumbing system to make sure that drinking water is not being contaminated by dirty water infiltrating the water supply.

Backflow Prevention

Backflow can be prevented through the use of an air gap. Using an air gap means leaving an empty space between any place where water might collect and the implements that connect to your plumbing system. Another way to prevent backflow is to use a backflow prevention device, such as a backflow preventer valve. A backflow preventer valve is installed at specific locations in your plumbing system where there is a risk of contaminated water entering your system such as your sprinkler system in your yard.

Why You Need Backflow Testing

Backflow prevention devices are a big help, but they can fail. This is why it is important to have your backflow tested yearly. Backflow testing is an important part of your home’s maintenance routine, because it makes sure that the water that you and your family are drinking is safe and clean. When you need backflow testing, contact A & K Plumbing Co 901-309-2565.
