Commercial properties are required to have their backflow preventer tested and certified every year. A quality inspection ensures that clean, drinkable water continues to be available to the community we serve.
Backflow preventers 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 with 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.
The experts at Atomic Plumbing in Virginia Beach can conduct regular backflow preventer inspections to make sure that this kind of disaster never happens to you. We will have a Certified Backflow tester come out to test and service your backflow preventer to ensure that you’re in compliance with state and local regulations. Then we will submit the necessary paper work to the required city as needed.
