Backflow Testing

Why is it important? 

Backflow testing is often necessary; here’s why. In a water pipe, backflow is the reverse flow of water from its “normal” direction. Backflow devices are used to guard water supplies from contamination. The State of Maine requires an annual inspection of your backflow prevention device by a licensed inspector. This is to prevent harmful toxins such as chemicals and other things from polluting water supplies. We’re licensed to test backflow devices using state-certified testing equipment. After we finish the test, we’ll send the completed paperwork to your city. We’ll also send you a copy of the paperwork for your own records.
