Commercial properties are required to have backflow meters that are tested and certified every year. A quality inspection insures that clean, drinkable water continues to be available to the community we serve.
Backflow meters do exactly what the name implies, they keep sewage and waste water from flowing backwards and contaminating potable water with non-potable water.
Such contamination usually occurs at cross connections in the plumbing system. For example, a cross connection might include steam pipes, boilers and irrigation systems crossing pipes that carry clean, drinkable water. The backflow of sewage, gray water or other contaminated substances into fresh water supply pipes can cause a serious health risk.
