Residential and Commercial Backflow Testing in Vancouver, BC
What Is It and Why Is It Important?
You want clean, safe drinking water in your water system. Backflow is an undesirable, dangerous event of the flow of water being reversed from the intended direction in a pipe or system. This is a serious situation and may potentially allow drainage and sewage water to contaminate drinking water in your home or office plumbing system, making it unsafe and unusable.
In Vancouver, many residential properties and commercial properties have some form of backflow prevention assembly. This protects the municipal water supply from a backflow that causes contamination. However, prevention systems can fail, which is why a plumber in Vancouver should regularly test your system to see if the assembly is working properly.
Backflow preventers are mechanical plumbing components which can easily be installed by your local plumber. They are used on residential and commercial plumbing systems and will prevent water from flowing back into the municipal water supply.
Our skilled plumber from Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating can install your assembly in Burnaby, Richmond, and all throughout the Lower Mainland correctly to offer years of protection. That system must be tested and maintained at least once a year.
Properly serviced backflow preventers can definitely protect water supply and protect the entire community, not just your home or office.
