Our certified and experienced technicians are here to provide comprehensive backflow testing services to keep your water safe from contamination.

What is Backflow? 

Backflow is a term for the unwanted reverse flow of water, which can introduce harmful substances into both the public water system and your own water supply. This issue might arise from unexpected changes in water pressure due to circumstances like a break in the water main or high demand from sprinklers and irrigation systems. The potential contaminants range from agricultural chemicals to harmful bacteria, presenting significant health hazards.

Why is Backflow Testing Important?

Backflow testing is important to prevent the risk of contaminating the public water supply and your own water. It ensures that the backflow prevention devices installed on your property are functioning correctly. These devices are designed to allow water to flow in only one direction, preventing any contaminated water from reversing back into clean water supplies.

Regular backflow testing is mandated by law in Indiana, including Columbus City regulations, to protect public health. Failure to comply can result in water service interruptions and legal penalties.
