We recommend annual backflow testing to gain peace of mind about the quality of your drinking water.
There are some things that you can safely assume are performing as they should as long as you don’t notice any signs of a problem. Others require regular testing because the potential danger of not doing so isn’t worth taking the risk. Backflow testing is an example of the latter because if your backflow preventer isn’t working properly, the quality of your drinking water and that of your community is jeopardized. At Carolina Plumbing & Repair, we recommend annual backflow testing whether or not your property is required to do so by the municipality.
Since we offer comprehensive backflow services, if backflow testing uncovers any type of issue, we will notify you of our findings and make a recommendation about what should be done. This might entail backflow repairs or replacement depending on the extent of the problem and the condition of the backflow preventer.
We recommend scheduling backflow testing for a time when it will be the least disruptive to have the water turned off. We need to do that briefly to test the cocks, ports, and other moving parts inside the backflow preventer. Our team is quite proficient with the test kit, so your downtime should be minimal unless a problem is found and repairs or replacement must be done.
If you are due for backflow testing or you have any questions about any of our backflow or other plumbing services, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to helping you have peace of mind about the quality of the drinking water at your Carteret County, North Carolina home or business.
