Backflow Testing 101: What it Is & Why it's Important

A backflow test checks your backflow prevention device to ensure it's preventing contaminated water from entering your water supply. Backflow occurs when water flow reverses direction, allowing non-potable water or other substances to enter the clean water supply.

During testing, one of our certified Santa Rosa backflow testers examines your backflow prevention device to ensure it's working. The test typically involves checking for leaks, proper pressure, and valve operation. We recommend a backflow prevention device repair or replacement if we identify any issues.

Backflow testing is crucial for maintaining the safety and purity of your water supply. This is especially important in commercial and industrial settings where the risk of cross-contamination is higher.
