Certain homes need backflow preventers, but so do many businesses. Here at 1st Choice Plumbing, we provide both residential and commercial plumbing services, including the installation of backflow prevention systems and backflow testing. Here’s a brief overview of the types of businesses that need a backflow preventer:

  • What businesses need backflow preventers? Certain types of companies produce substances that could be harmful if they entered the water supply. A backflow prevention system keeps this from happening. Medical clinics, restaurants, multi-tenant rental units, churches, beauty and nail salons, funeral homes, car washes, commercial buildings of three stories and taller, and commercial spaces with fire service lines or sprinkler systems are usually required to have a backflow preventer.
  • How can I find out if my business needs one? Each municipality has its own requirements. States do as well. Start by contacting those agencies, then call a plumber who offers these services. The team here at 1st Choice Plumbing is experienced in backflow preventer installation and backflow testing. We’ll help you figure out what is needed for your South Carolina business and get the job done right.
  • What if I already have a backflow prevention device installed? You’ll need to conduct annual backflow testing. Call us for service in Rock Hill, Lancaster, Indian Land, Fort Mill, and surrounding areas of South Carolina.
