Backflow Testing

LOCATION: Boca Raton FL, 33431 (Backflow) CAUSE OF PROBLEM: Leak on Backflow RESOLUTION: Most people have never heard of a backflow or have any idea what it does. A backflow devices is designed to allow water to be released form the unit if there is a pressure drop on city water main side. You may be asking yourself why does that matter? What is the point? The reason is to protect the city water source from having a "backflow" or back pressure from homes and businesses. Are you asking yourself, why would there be back pressure from a house or business onto the city water? The reasoning behind that would be that if the municipality has a water break for instance, which will cause a major pressure drop. The water in the pipes of businesses and homes will not re-enter the system if there is a backflow device on the water line. Which will protect the clean water in the city water source. In the picture you can see that there was older backflow devices that we were called out to test and re-certify. Most municipality's will require a licensed company certify the backflow yearly. The old units failed and count not be rebuilt. So replacement was the only option. The units installed are a anti-thief style unit made from mostly plastic. Rather then all brass as most backflows are. ...

Location of Project: Condominium high rise in Fort Lauderdale Florida. The cause of Problem: Annually testing required by Municipality on Backflow. Resolution: Rhino Rooter can perform regular maintenance, repairs, and Backflow re-certifications on all domestic water units no matter the size. The technician on site was able to test the unit via test ports located on the backflow. These tests can only be performed by an individual that is licensed for Backflow re-certifications and repairs. This is a separate certification from a Master Plumbing license. The equipment that is was used to perform the test is a Mid-West test kit. This test kit and all test kits must be calibrated by a professional yearly to ensure that test are being performed properly. Backflows are necessary to prevent any domestic water system from becoming contaminated. An example would be if there was a water line break on the city water system and the system loses its normal pressure the Backflow device on your property will stop water from being siphoned back into the city domestic water system. It is crucial for the safety of your drinking tap water that these devices are maintained properly and checked regularly.
