Backflow refers to the reversal of normal water flow through your pipes. If this happens, your water supply becomes contaminated with bacteria and other pathogens. This is why annual backflow testing is crucial.
When water flows backward into pipes that carry drinking water, you and your family can become sick from drinking contaminated water. Because of this, you need to test your pipes for backflow problems on an annual basis. While backflow prevention equipment can be installed to help prevent this problem, you still need to test the equipment to ensure that it continues to work properly.
What is the law regarding backflow testing in Tucson?
Many residential properties in Tucson are exempt from needing to install a backflow prevention device, but most commercial properties are required to have this equipment on site. If your home is required to install this by a notice from the city’s water control specialist, we can provide you with more information about the requirements for your property and install the equipment for you.
When backflow prevention systems are installed, they are required to be tested annually. Contact us to set up your next test so you can remain compliant with state laws.
What is the testing process?
Backflow testing should be conducted annually by a licensed professional. Our technicians at Spartan Plumbing, Inc. are experienced in this process. Backflow testing requires the water supply to be turned off for a period of time. We will conduct various tests to determine which direction the water is flowing and inspect the equipment for leaks. We will also conduct a pressure test. If water pressure is too low in the pipes, there is an increased risk of backflow.
