Safeguarding the Public Water System is an essential part of backflow prevention.
Each connection to the public water system is an opportunity for non-potable water to enter the public water system. Without backflow testing and prevention devices, water from residential plumbing systems, sprinkler systems, swimming pools, and businesses could flow into our public water supply.
Local, state and federal guidelines and laws are in place to protect the public’s water supply. Backflow preventers are installed and tested annually to avoid hazardous water entering the public water system.

Our technicians are certified in the state of Ohio to test and repair any make and model of backflow prevention device. Each calendar year your device must be tested and must pass, in accordance with your water department codes.
Backflow is the movement of used or non-potable water back into a clean or potable water system rather than its normal flow. In water systems, water is intended to flow in a certain direction, usually from the source in the street to the fixture or appliance in your building, the reverse flow of non-potable water into a potable water source can be dangerous. Backflow is caused by the increase of pressure on the building side or at the “point of use” which results in the flow of water back toward the source. Backflow is avoided if you have no cross connections between potable and non potable water systems.
Simply put if water that has entered your irrigation system, toilet, or any other contaminated area gets siphoned back into the supply line.
Plumbing problems like a water main bursts, pipes freeze or an unexpectedly high demand on the water system can also create a suction effect, possibly drawing contaminated water into the drinking water system. For this reason, back-flow or cross-connection can be a serious health risk. It allows contaminants such as fertilizers, pesticides or animal residues to flow back into potable water supply system. Connections between the water supply and a source of contamination are called cross-connections.

We provide our technicians with training and continuing education units beyond those required by the state. We always feel the best way to serve you is to provide the best-trained backflow prevention testing professionals in the field.
A backflow prevention device is a mechanical device designed to prevent the cross-connection of substances that can pollute or contaminate the water supply during a backflow condition.
