Does Your Long Island Home Have a Properly Installed Backflow Device?
We have been serving the plumbing needs of Long Island for over 75-years and continue to find that many home and business owners are often unsure about backflow devices; what they are and what they do.
Some Long Island districts deem backflow devices mandatory—this means they must be properly installed and maintained. At Rebmann, we can help you check the plumbing code and test your system to ensure that it is in proper working order.
What Are Backflow Devices?
Backflow devices, or backflow prevention devices, work to protect water from contamination. They function to keep the potable (drinking) water in your commercial or residential space separate from county or district water. The successful operation of this plumbing system is clearly essential for maintaining a healthy and safe living or working environment.
What is the Number One Sign of a Broken Backflow Device?
The number one sign of a faulty backflow device is low water pressure. Water pressure should always be strong and steady. It should never fluctuate or lessen. Low or fluctuating water pressure could also be the sign of clogged drains or several other plumbing concerns, but either way, low water pressure is not normal and the sure sign of a problem that needs to be immediately addressed before it worsens.
We recommend at least annual backflow prevention testing. We’ll visit your home or business at any time that is convenient for you, but we suggest checking out our service contract agreement. This way everything is scheduled in advance and you don’t have to worry about remembering to set appointments. Our service contract agreement entitles you to:
– Priority service
