Backflow Testing — Backflow Testing Hyde Park, NY
 
 

Backflow Testing

Many residential and commercial areas require backflow installation and yearly testing to ensure the device installed is doing its job, preventing backflow. To keep up-to-date on codes, make sure to have a New York state certified tester perform your yearly backflow testing. During this test, a certified inspector will test the direction of water flow and the water pressure differential within the device.
 

Backflow Prevention Systems

These devices are commonly referred to RPZ's (reduced pressure assemblies), DCV's (double check valve assemblies), Anti-Siphon assemblies and Air Gap Fittings (to name a few). They each have specific applications and are usually designated by an engineer for the application. They all have one thing in common, and that is to prevent water from flowing back into a system.
 
 
If these devices are not properly installed or tested, backflow can occur. Once it does, it can wreak havoc on a public or private water supply system. To schedule backflow prevention or backflow testing in Hyde Park, NY, call Cleveland Plumbing and Heating Inc. at (845)229-8988.
