Backflow Preventor Testing & Inspection for Your Portland or Seattle Facility
You probably take clean drinking water for granted, but without backflow preventers, your building’s water supply could become unsafe to drink. Backflow, or the undesirable reverse flow of water in a plumbing system, is dangerous because it can contaminate drinking water with sewage. A backflow preventer is a relatively simple yet critically important component for sprinkler systems, water pumps, and other irrigation and wastewater systems. This mechanical plumbing device prevents water from flowing backward, therefore preventing contamination.
To ensure a backflow preventer continues to work as intended, it must be routinely tested and inspected. Performance Systems Integration can perform the services you need. Every backflow prevention system in use today has unique testing procedures and intervals, so for the best results, we recommend leaving the job to our knowledgeable and experienced team.
If you require backflow preventer testing or inspection in Portland or Seattle, please contact Performance Systems Integration to schedule services today.
Backflow Prevention Testing in Seattle, WA
Following the installation of your backflow preventer, an initial test ensures the device is working correctly. Annual tests from then on are required to ensure the backflow preventer continues to do its job. You must also have the device tested if you relocate or repair it. These regulations are in place to safeguard public drinking water and are enforced by the EPA. Failure to keep up with the required testing time frame could result in an interrupted freshwater supply and fines for noncompliance.
The staff here at PSI is highly experienced with testing backflow prevention systems. We utilize a cloud-based program called BuildingReports to generate a database of your fire protection systems, including backflow preventers. After a thorough audit of your system, we can develop a unique testing schedule based on your precise equipment and compliance needs. We then plug this schedule into our software to build a customized testing program just for you.
Contact Performance Systems Integration for backflow prevention testing to remain compliant with state and local regulations. Our goal is to make testing as simple and hassle-free as possible.
