Commercial Backflow Testing & Installation in Akron, OH
Akron and Northeast Ohio residents depend on their municipal water systems to deliver fresh, clean water that can safely be consumed and used for food preparation. Any contamination of the water system can be dangerous to the health of residents and costly for the municipality to mitigate. That is why devices like backflow preventers are so important. They protect the potable water supply from accidental contamination, and they are essential in commercial environments.

Why Backflow Prevention is Important
Typically, the municipal water supply is pressurized and pushes water through the pipes to supply homes and businesses. This water is often used in pools, car washes, or irrigation systems, where water is stored temporarily or permanently.
Suppose the municipal water supply loses pressure, or a pump on a private water system exerts higher than the municipal supply. In that case, the water can flow from the private system to the public system. Suppose the water from the private water system is contaminated with bacteria, viruses, or chemicals. In that case, the public water supply will likely be contaminated, threatening the health and safety of residents. Backflow preventers are designed to prevent this reverse water flow, typically using a pair of check valves.

With time, backflow preventers can become clogged with debris or fail, leaving the municipal water system vulnerable to contamination. To prevent this, testing is required every 12 months for all commercial backflow prevention devices. If the backflow preventer fails the test, it must be removed and rebuilt or replaced if it is not rebuildable.
