Backflow Testing Services Performed for Spring Hill, FL, Homes & Businesses
All water in your Spring Hill home or business is usually kept at a standard pressure to move it one way out of the building. Dirty sink, shower, and toilet water travels through your pipes and out of your home or business, but if an unexpected pressure change occurs, then contaminated water from the ground or storage can enter the system. While there are methods you can put in place to prevent this, it’s also important to have backflow testing performed at least once a year by a professional company – like Meares Plumbing.
What is Backflow Testing?
This process is used by experts like Meares to test your plumbing system to make sure that the clean drinking water in your home or business is not being contaminated by dirty water infiltrating the system. You may be thinking, “But what if I have backflow prevention?” Certain devices, such as a backflow preventer valve, can be installed where there is a risk of contaminated water entering your system. While these are a big help, they can still fail, so it’s helpful to have backflow testing performed to give you complete peace of mind that your drinking water is clean.
When You Should Have It Done
It’s a good idea to have backflow testing performed at least once a year at your home or business. While Florida doesn’t necessarily have cold enough weather to where the ground freezes, you could still choose to have backflow testing performed in the spring when the ‘winter’ months are over. Or, you can opt to call Meares to perform the task after the rainy summer months when there is a greater risk of flooding and backflow problems.
