About How We Can Help!

How to Protect Your Property from Backflow

Installation of backflow prevention is required to stop backflow, which occurs when water flow reverses direction in the piping. This creates back siphonage, pulling contaminated water into the clean water supply. Backflow can result in this water supply becoming contaminated by chemicals or even human waste. Backflow prevention is required to avoid the associated health risks of water contamination.

Generally, backflow prevention is required for commercial properties, but some residential properties are required to have this system in place. A backflow prevention device is designed to only allow water to flow in one direction. This prevents backflow from contaminating the water in the building or the whole municipal piping system. If your property requires backflow prevention in Mammoth Lakes, you must have the device installed and tested annually.

Backflow Prevention Services

  • Installation – Your plumber will evaluate your plumbing system to determine the ideal location for the backflow prevention device and complete the installation according to all code requirements. 
  • Testing – Properties that are required to have backflow prevention must have annual testing to ensure the device is operating properly. A licensed plumber can perform the inspection and certification paperwork required for compliance. 
  • Repair – If you have a backflow issue or a problem is detected during annual testing, you may need repair for your backflow prevention device. 
  • Replacement – In some situations, repair is not enough to solve a problem with a backflow prevention device. Factors such as the age of the device, condition of the assembly, and availability of replacement parts can influence the decision between repair and replacement. 

Whether you need testing, installation, or repair for a backflow prevention device, the work needs to be completed by a properly licensed and certified plumber. The code requirements for installation and testing are very specific and a plumber with the right training and knowledge will make sure your property is in full compliance.
