Why Is Backflow Testing Important?
Backflow testing is part of the annual maintenance required for each and every professionally installed irrigation system & boiler ( Hydronic Heating System). It ensures the device is properly protecting your water supply from potential backflow.
We take backflow prevention very seriously as it can have costly even sometimes fatal consequences. We do not mess around when it comes to the safety of your drinking water because it’s our drinking water too.
