Backflow Prevention Services for Your Machesney Park Business

Multi-family properties and commercial enterprises reap significant benefits by using backflow prevention devices to ensure that tenants, employees, and customers always have a supply of fresh, clean water. Backflow prevention devices protect the potable water supply from contamination with sewage and other contaminants. Moreover, many municipal codes in Wisconsin and Illinois require installation of these within the plumbing systems of these properties. In particular, within hospitals, restaurants, apartment complexes, and condominiums. 

Our backflow testing and repair teams are certified and have the skills and knowledge required to ensure the job is completed to the highest quality standards. When you want to install a backflow preventer, wish to conduct regular maintenance, or need an emergency repair, it is our pleasure to deliver the service you desire.

Backflow Maintenance in Machesney Park, IL

Backflow maintenance is essential for ensuring the proper flow of water on your property. If the valve within the preventer fails, it won’t shut properly and can allow wastewater to enter your plumbing system. Over time, the valve can wear out from the pressure exerted upon it and require replacement. Maintaining the backflow preventer requires turning off the water main, removing the cover, and inspecting the interior of the device for signs of damage. As a general rule, you should have your backflow preventer thoroughly tested once every five years, and the check valve assembly every three years. Depending on your system and the amount of water usage, as well as any governing regulations, you may need to adjust this schedule to incorporate more frequent inspections.
