The Importance of Backflow Testing

The simplest definition of “backflow” is that it is the flow of liquid, solid, or gas in the direction opposite its normal flow. This happens in your home with wastewater, which is both gross and hazardous. Liquids, solids, or gases can work back into the potable water supply system of your home. It is important to understand that backflow does not only deal with water, but anything that can go back and contaminate your drinking water supply. Any property that has lawn sprinkler system is susceptible to herbicides and similar chemicals contaminating its water supply. In fact, over 10,000 cases of backflow contaminations have been recorded every year with some of them being fatal. Because of how serious it is, many cities impose stiff fines on property owners if they fail to have backflow testing for their plumbing system, so it is important to understand why it is important to have a professional do this testing for you.

Let Coffey Refrigeration do this for you. Using an effective testing method, we will be able to identify any dangerous chemicals and organic compounds that may be part of your drinking water. We can also install a backflow protection device. The design of the backflow protection devices allows it to prevent chemicals, wastewater, and other hazards from going into your main water supply where you also get your drinking water.
