Does your business need a backflow preventer? If so, you may be a little unsure of exactly what you need to do. 1st Choice Plumbing understands that this is one of the more complicated aspects of commercial plumbing. Here are four things you’ll need to do in order to install a commercial backflow preventer:

  1. Contact a commercial plumber – First, you’ll need to reach out to a commercial plumber. Some commercial plumbing companies may not offer backflow preventer installation services so be sure to ask about their experience.
  2. Get your plumbing inspected – Have the commercial plumber inspect your entire system. If there are other issues, the plumber will find them and fix them right then and there. This will help the installation process run more smoothly.
  3. Get it installed – The plumber will then install your backflow preventer. Testing will be conducted to make sure the device is working properly.
  4. Schedule annual tests – Your state or municipality will probably require yearly backflow tests to make sure your device is working. This is very important for preserving the quality of everyone’s water.
