What to expect from A Pittsburgh Plumber’s Backflow Testing

To conduct proper backflow testing, a temporary interruption is required in your water service. A Pittsburgh Plumber will coordinate with the site manager to assure the proper timing to shut off the water for a short period. The duration of your backflow testing will vary depending upon many factors including size of your equipment, location of your backflow device and access availability. We do our very best to be thorough and timely.

What is a Backflow Preventer?

Backflow preventers or backflow prevention devices are installed to protect the public water system from potential contamination hazards. They are installed to contain or isolate potential backflow, backsiphonage, and backpressure hazard within buildings or residences.
