Backflow Prevention

Suffolk County Backflow Prevention

Ensuring the Safety of Water on Long Island

Backflow occurs when polluted water enters the pipes that deliver fresh water to a home or business. This can result in a contaminated water supply in your home or business. In most cases, backflow prevention devices are used in commercial facilities, but they can be found in some homes. The pros at Order a Plumber Inc. offer plumbing services for backflow prevention in Suffolk County.

If you need backflow prevention device installation or testing, call (631) 234-0687 to schedule service.

Backflow Poses Danger to Health

Backflow can allow contaminants to enter the water supply, which has been known to cause serious illness. There have been incidents in cities throughout the country of people getting sick from water that has been contaminated with E.coli, salmonella, and other contaminants. For this reason, backflow prevention devices are required for use in commercial kitchens.

Backflow prevention can protect your clean water supply from:

  • Oil
  • Bacteria
  • Pesticides
  • Fertilizers
  • Chemicals

The best way to prevent water contamination is to install a backflow prevention system and ensure that it is regularly tested. Annual testing is required to ensure that backflow prevention devices are working as they should and keeping contaminants out of the water. We offer installation and testing of backflow prevention systems to ensure that your water system is protected.

How Long Do Backflow Preventers Last?

Backflow preventers need to be tested annually, and can last anywhere from 3-5 years depending on the type of preventer being used. The RPZ assembly model that can last up to 5 years require more maintenance than the DCV assembly model.
