Commercial Backflow Testing and Prevention in Harrisburg, PA
If your business is in need of backflow preventer testing, repair, or maintenance then we have you covered. Because of codes, your small business or apartment building probably already has a backflow prevention device in place. However, over time, the device can malfunction, wear out or break. It is required that your business’s backflow preventer is tested annually.
At Zimmerman Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we have been serving the greater Harrisburg and Central Pennsylvania area since 1980. Our team of experienced technicians is more than happy to perform commercial backflow prevention services and perform any necessary repairs on your system.
What Is Backflow?
When systems are working as they should, clean water will typically travel through municipal water lines into your business. Backflow occurs when this clean water reverses from its normal direction of flow. When the clean water is unintentionally reversed, suction begins to pull in polluted or contaminated liquids, gases, solids or mixtures from the structure into the system.
This backflow can contaminate the potable drinking water being distributed down the line.
Why Regular Commercial Backflow Testing Services Are Important
Because backflow can bring in large amounts of harmful substances, it can be a health hazard to anyone using or consuming the water.
Backflow testing and prevention services determine if the polluted water is getting sucked into the clean water system from your commercial building. A professional is required to perform this testing annually to ensure that the system is working as it should and does not need any maintenance work or repairs.
How We Do Backflow Testing
Our trained and certified plumbers can test and repair businesses with up to 6″ piping. We have highly collaborated testing equipment to provide validation to you that your business has performed this mandated service. If there is a cross-connection in your system between dirty and clean water, it is important to have a backflow preventer in place.
However, if your commercial building is older, it might not have one. If this is the case, it’s best to install one to reduce the risk of backflow occurring.
