What is a backflow device?
A device that is installed to protect the drinking water form coming in contact with a questionable contaminant. When installed correctly and operating properly, it will prevent contaminants from entering the potable water supply.
Why does the backflow device have to be tested yearly?
Any device that is mechanical may fail and must be regularly checked and tested. The manufacturer recommends that testable backflow devices be tested yearly. In addition, The Ohio Basic Plumbing Code states that backflow devices must be tested at least annually and upon installation and any repairs.
We are registered to test in the following areas:
Medina County, Akron area, Cleveland area, Columbus area
Prices start at $65.00 for devices 1 inch or less in size
