Backflow Preventer Testing

Protect Your Rockville, MD Home's Water Supply With Backflow Preventer Testing

No matter where you live in the DMV, there are state and federal regulations in place to protect your drinking water. The most common is the enforcement of backflow preventer testing. A backflow preventer keeps contaminants from entering the drinking water supply. Backflow preventer testing or backflow prevention inspections are required annually by a licensed and approved backflow prevention contractor. If you are a property owner, manager, or facilities maintenance service provider, you are responsible for ensuring that backflow preventers are installed correctly, and that information is reported to the local authority. If not, you could be subject to fines and penalties. In most cases, if you are responsible for a cross-connection and a backflow event occurs you could be liable for the resultant property damage, sickness, or death. Believe it or not, it can be that serious.
