Backflow Prevention Services in Naples, FL

If you own or operate a commercial property, you almost certainly have a backflow prevention device in place in order to protect the municipal water supply from cross-contamination. (Some residential buildings, such as apartment complexes, may have one, but it’s rare for individual homes.) This prevention device usually requires annual inspections to keep the business up to code: it’s important to know the water supply is safe from accidental contamination due to contamination flowing the wrong direction through the pipes.

Our licensed and trained plumbers at Bruno Total Home Performance are full certified to test as well as repair and replace backflow prevention devices in Naples, FL and throughout Central and Southwest Florida. It’s important to us that your business continues to run safely.

The Role of the Backflow Preventer

The backflow preventer assembly is usually visible on a commercial property as a large bend of pipe extruding from the ground. What it does is stop the accidental backward flow of bacteria–filled waste water into the freshwater side.

Usually a pressure balance between the two sides prevents this contamination. However, a decrease in pressure on the freshwater side—something that can happen because of a rapid water drain from a sprinkler system or the fire department—causes back siphonage, which draws contaminated water the wrong direction into the freshwater pipes. It’s also possible for an increase in pressure on the other side of the pipes to cause reversal of flow. The backflow prevent stops this from occurring with a valve that closes automatically when water moves the wrong direction.

Do You Need Backflow Testing?

If you own a commercial building that uses plumbing in any way, you almost will certainly require certified backflow testing at some point, most likely every year. This is because the check valve and other components of the device start to wear down and corrode over time. You’ll receive a notification regarding when your backflow prevention device require regular testing.

When this happens, contact our certified and Bruno–trained plumbers, and they’ll arrange to have a backflow testing certified technician to come to your establishment and do the job. If the backflow preventer fails the test, our technicians can fix it or replace it—whatever is necessary to see that your building is up to code.
