Commercial backflow services on fire protection and plumbing systems
Backflow prevention devices are required by most municipal codes in order to protect the local ware supply. Backflow prevention is typically implemented at each cross-connection point within a plumbing system to prevent contaminated water from coming into contact with potable water.
Water can be contaminated with a number of substances that are not healthy for human contact, such as feces and pesticides as well as hazardous materials like chemicals and fertilizers. Valley Fire Protection is uniquely suited to make sure backflow services are working correctly.
RPZ backflow preventer devices testing and certification
Backflow, a reversal in the flow of water in a plumbing system, is a fairly common problem caused by back pressure and back siphonage. Illinois EPA regulations require that every reduced pressure zone valve assembly (RPZ) backflow preventer device, which keeps contaminated water from coming into contact with potable water, be inspected and certified annually.
At Valley Fire Protection, our certified inspectors will test and certify residential backflow prevention devices. We will then make sure that the relevant municipality receives all the required documents demonstrating compliance with regulations.
Our inspection and maintenance team specializes in fire sprinkler systems for commercial buildings such as warehouses, offices and hotels, as well as residential properties like single-family homes, condos, apartment buildings and townhouses.
Illinois EPA regulations and local municipalities also require that every building’s backflow prevention assembly be inspected and certified annually. Backflow testing is important to ensure your safety by protecting drinking water from chemicals and toxins. Our licensed cross-connection control device inspectors (CCCDIs) perform this service and provide the proper certificate to governmental agencies and insurance carriers.
We certify and test:
- Cross-connection controls on all testable backflow devices.
- Repair backflow assemblies.
Backflow problems are typically created by forces that are beyond the customer’s control. Also a backflow prevention device is a key safety and health component of your business. Contact us or schedule your backflow test today and rely on Valley Fire to help keep your property and water safe.
