Backflow Testing in Tucson, AZ

Give us a call today: 520-492-0748

Backflow occurs when wastewater flows in the wrong direction through plumbing pipes and enters into the freshwater supply, potentially contaminating the local public water supply with microorganisms, toxins, and bacteria. To prevent this, plumbing systems with cross-connections between freshwater and wastewater must have backflow prevention devices installed, and these devices require regular testing to ensure they’re working.

If you live in a house that requires a backflow preventer, you must rely on specially licensed plumbers to handle backflow testing. You can count on the plumbers at Picture Rocks Cooling Heating & Plumbing to take on the job in Tucson, AZ. We provide fast and accurate work and deliver peace of mind.

Tucson Backflow Testing: Protect Your Water, Avoid Fines

Many homes do not need backflow preventers because there are no points in the plumbing where wastewater may potentially enter the freshwater pipes. However, some houses have cross-connections, such as homes with sprinklers or irrigation systems. The lines for these systems are directly connected to the main water supply so they can potentially experience backflow.
Backflow usually happens when there’s a drop in pressure on the freshwater side (such as when the fire department uses a hydrant), causing wastewater to move in the wrong direction. A backflow preventer closes off the pipe if this happens.
If your home has a backflow preventer, you must have it tested annually by professionals with proper certification. You’ll receive a notification from the water company regarding this, and it’s up to you to schedule the testing. You’ll avoid fines and a possible water shut-off as well as protect your drinking water.
