Over time, backflow assemblies and devices have parts that can break down and wear out. At Kellermeier Plumbing, we provide conveniently scheduled backflow testing to ensure that your drinking water is safe from contamination.
According to the American Ground Water Trust, the term backflow refers to the unwanted, and sometimes unforeseen, reversal of a liquid into your potable water supply.
A device known as a backflow preventer is in place to help keep this from happening in your home or business. This type of device helps protect your drinking water and the city water from harmful contaminants.
Leaks in your house, a water main break, or the use of a fire hydrant can cause a significant change in the water pressure. If this happens, contaminated water can back up into your water supply.
By having a properly functioning backflow device in place at your home, your risk of having contaminated or harmful water backing up into your drinking water is significantly lowered, or even eliminated.
The Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act requires that water suppliers have a comprehensive cross connection control program, and the Michigan Plumbing Code requires annual backflow testing.
The team at Kellermeier Plumbing consists of cross connection control certified backflow professionals, and we have the trusted knowledge to test and repair your backflow systems.
By having the backflow tested annually, the drinking water supplied to your home will remain safe.
Keep your family safe by protecting your drinking water from contamination with our licensed backflow testing.
