Prevent Damage to Your Pipes with Backflow TestingIf you have a backflow on your property, it is important that you have the backflow tested every year. Some cities even require it, so you should be aware if your city requires this testing. Backflow testing should be done by a certified plumber, and they will file all the paperwork with the city for you. All you have to do is call and schedule an appointment to have the testing done at your home at a time that is convenient for you. The plumber will take care of the rest.

You might be wondering why it is important to have backflow testing done. It could seem like it is just one more thing for you to have to worry about. Like many things, backflow testing is critical to keep up with to prevent costly problems down the road. Your pipes could crack or break if your backflow is not working properly. This can cause a lot of damage to your pipes. Also, if you have culinary and irrigation water, a backflow that is not functioning properly can cause irrigation water to mix with your culinary water, contaminating your fresh water supply. If you do not know this is happening, it can make you and your family sick because irrigation water is not clean.
