Reap the Benefits of Regular Backflow Preventer Inspection
In addition to avoiding a DEP backflow violation and fines of up to $2,000, performing routine backflow prevention inspection provides your commercial building with a variety of additional benefits:
- Keeps your building compliant with state and local regulations and laws
- Prevents major problems before they occur
- Peace of mind that your building is safe and in good hands
- You don’t have to handle any of the inspection scheduling or paperwork
The complexity and size of your building’s backflow preventer device will correlate to what your building’s specific risks are. Regardless, backflow preventers are essential to protecting the clean water supply in your building and need to be tested each year.
What Happens During a Backflow Inspection?
One of our certified and trained testers will test the gate and relief valves of your building’s backflow devices. This enables us to identify problems such as irregular functionality, movement and leaks.
We will then confirm that all air ports and valves are functioning properly. If we locate any problems, we’ll determine if device replacement or repair is the best course of action.
Why Is Inspection So Important for My Building?
Water flows through your pipes and into your building in one direction. Sudden changes in water pressure can result in the water starting to flow backward. This sensation is called “backflow.” Exterior water main breaks or open fire hydrants are the most common causes of this type of water pressure change.
Backflow devices prevent non-potable water and sometimes both chemicals and waste from entering the drinking supply. This would obviously pose a health hazard for your building and the ones who live around it. New York City and the surrounding boroughs are densely packed, and it is therefore vital to maintain the safety of those around you in mind as well.
If the backflow device on your property is not installed properly, this can also cause your water to become contaminated. When the device is installed properly, however, the appropriate mechanism will be triggered during the event of backflow and the device will then prohibit contaminated water from entering your building’s clean water supply.
If you don’t have any backflow devices on your property, you received a violation, or you need a routine inspection – you need to work with a highly-respected company in the New York City marketplace. Allstate Sprinkler understands how the inspection process works and we are here to assist you with performing the tests and mitigating any fines.
