We recommend reaching out for backflow maintenance at least once a year.
Having a backflow preventer installed and never having it maintained or tested is like never getting an oil change or other maintenance done for your car. It won’t perform well for you for very long if you don’t take care of it. At Carolina Plumbing & Repair, we recommend an annual appointment for backflow maintenance so we can ensure your backflow system is keeping water from going in the wrong direction and potentially contaminating your well water or the municipal water supply.
Our backflow maintenance visit involves completing a visual inspection, testing the cocks and ports in the device, and utilizing a test kit to ensure everything else is performing as it should. You should be aware that we will need to shut off the water to your Raleigh, North Carolina home or business while we are performing the backflow maintenance process, so we recommend scheduling the appointment for a time when this would be the least disruptive as possible.
If our backflow maintenance process determines that there is an issue, we will handle the repair or replacement needed to prevent backflow from occurring going forward. We can also provide you with a report of our testing results that you can keep on file should you need to submit it to your municipality or another official.
If you are due for backflow maintenance or have questions about backflow preventers in general, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We offer all the backflow services you could ever need, including backflow repair, installation, replacement, and testing. Call today to learn more.
