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.
