Backflow testing is a routine procedure designed to ensure no contaminated water is entering your water supply from outside sources. Annual backflow testing helps ensure that only clean, potable water is flowing through your plumbing into your home or business.
Most Northwest Ohio businesses are required by state and county to have an up-to-date backflow preventer installed, but some older buildings do not have one. If you’re not sure your building has a backflow preventer, you’ll need someone who is trained and certified in your area to evaluate your plumbing system.
It’s also a good idea for residential homes to have regular backflow testing in order to ensure that the system is functioning properly to keep your family safe from unclean water — especially for older homes, which often don’t have an adequate backflow preventer installed.
Backflow testing is not a job for do-it-yourself plumbers.
