Now, more than ever, protection of water as a limited resource is an essential issue. Current state and local regulations are in place to test backflows annually and bi-annually in order to aide in this issue. Mitchell Land & Labor will help you stay compliant and keep your water source free of harmful contaminants.
Backflow testing is a plumbing service that checks your backflow preventer device by assessing its pressure levels. When backflow is present, untreated or contaminated water can be back-siphoned into your clean water. For this reason, testing guarantees the water you use for drinking and showering is safe.
Backflow testing is required at initial installation and annually at start up. Like any other mechanical device, over time a backflow unit may fail. To ensure it is working properly to protect home and public drinking water systems, the code mandates an annual test.
Only Certified Backflow Inspectors can legally test and inspect the units. Mitchell Land & Labor has two in house Certified Backflow Inspectors. Contact us today to get on our inspector's schedule.
