Fire and Safety Equipment Company offers Certified Backflow Testing on all types of assemblies including fire line, domestic, and irrigation. Backflow is the undesirable reversal of the flow of water from its intended direction in any pipeline or plumbing system. Backflow is dangerous because it can allow drinking water in plumbing systems to become contaminated and unusable. You don’t want the ‘bad’ water mixing in with ‘good’ water. That’s where we come in.
At Fire & Safety we have been providing Backflow Testing and Services to Virginia for over 45 years. We are professionals and we have hundreds of satisfied customers because of our prompt service, attention to detail and efficient administration of tests and results.
What Is Involved With Backflow Testing?
The Backflow testing process is fairly simple. Each device has test ports built into it to allow for annual testing. A Fire & Safety backflow technician will connect a test kit to the device and verify proper operation. All water downstream of the backflow device must be shut off to perform the test. Just leave us the backflow paperwork you received from the Health Dept or City and we’ll take care of the rest. Just like that! Of course if your device is inside then someone would need to be there in order to let us in, but we will coordinate with you for prompt appointments so you don’t have to waste the entire day waiting.
