If you have a backflow prevention device installed in your home or business, you are probably required by New Jersey or local laws to have professional backflow testing conducted at least once a year. If you need to schedule backflow testing in New Jersey, give us a call at 2Plumbers. We routinely conduct thorough, professional backflow preventer testing for New Jersey residents, helping you make sure everything’s working correctly in case of an emergency.
Backflow prevention assemblies serve a critical role to protect not only your plumbing, but also the community’s water supplies as a whole. Homes and businesses with systems for lawn irrigation and fire suppression, or even with a sufficiently large boiler installed, may need a backflow prevention device to prevent contaminated water from flowing into municipal drinking water during certain emergencies. Boilers can accumulate sediment and rust in the water, as can fire suppression sprinklers where water can sit dormant for long periods of time. Irrigation systems have the potential to introduce pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and other materials into the clean water supply. Backflow testing ensures that your backflow preventer is working correctly, so that during an emergency like a burst water main or a major storm, dirty water won’t back up into your area’s clean water supply.
If it’s time for you to schedule your annual backflow preventer testing in New Jersey, call us today at 2Plumbers, at 201-765-0466.
