How Backflow Prevention Works
A backflow prevention device is designed to prevent potentially hazardous water from back siphoning up and cross contaminating the clean water supply. These devices are generally required when there is concern that contaminated water from a home or commercial property could get into the city or county clean water supply.
Situations that can result in a sudden change in pressure include:
- A broken water main
- Opening a fire hydrant
- Failure at a municipal station
When there is a sudden change in pressure, the contaminated water can enter the clean water supply, if there is no backflow prevention in place. A properly installed and functioning device will prevent the back siphonage and protect your drinking water from contamination.
How Often Should Backflow Prevention Be Inspected?
Professional plumbers recommend that backflow prevention devices be inspected annually during the same month they were initially installed. When property owners fail to undergo backflow prevention inspections each year, they face an increased risk that their device could malfunction.
Problems with backflow prevention devices can lead to exposure to untreated water, which contains pollutants, contaminants, and bacteria – all of which can be dangerous to a person's health. In the case that a backflow prevention device fails, the property owner may be held responsible for damages. Contact our Sanford plumbers to schedule your backflow prevention device inspection today.

In Sanford, as in many communities, backflow prevention system testing, and repair must be conducted by a certified tester and licensed plumber.

Several members of our team have earned the required certifications and have the qualifications needed to address any problem with your backflow system.
Schedule Your Annual Backflow Testing
Properties with backflow prevention must have safety inspections, certification, and testing performed every year. In certain situations, more frequent testing may be required. During the inspection, our plumbers will inspect the check valves, relief vales, and air ports. We carefully check for any irregularities in pressure and make sure there are no issues or code violations. The process takes about a half hour, so you should expect to be without water during the testing process.
Backflow device inspection is important to ensure that contaminants aren’t getting into your clean water supply. If the testing shows that backflow is present or another problem is discovered during the inspection and testing process, we can repair the device and make sure it is working properly. After the inspection is complete, we will submit the required form to ensure that your are in compliance.
