Why Prevent Backflow?

Non-potable water isn’t considered safe for human consumption- it can contain heavy metals, bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants. If that non-potable water enters your drinking water system, you may consume, wash with, or otherwise come into contact with substances that are harmful to your health and the health of others.

 

What kind of backflow prevention devices do we install?

  • Air gap backflow devices

How Often Does Backflow Prevention Devices Need to be Tested?

Most of the cities in Lower Mainland require annual testing of all backflow prevention devices. If testing indicates a failure, businesses or residences are required to repair the equipment and submit it to a new round of testing following repair.
