What is Backflow Preventer testing?
A backflow preventer is a device that’s installed on your home’s water pipes that allows water to flow in one direction but never in the opposite direction. Its sole job is to prevent drinking water from being contaminated due to backflow. Backflow prevention systems are devices installed onto a pipe that only allow water to flow in one direction. Town of Prosper, TX, requires residents to make sure that the city water system is not contaminated by backflow from the owner’s residence or commercial property.
