Backflow Preventer Certification

Backflow Preventer Certification

Your Backflow Preventer will by law need to be certified annually. Double Check valves have to be tested every 6 months. Occasionally, we find problems. After we consult with you, we will either fix the problem or contact our ( or your) plumber, as necessary. We take care of faxing your report to the appropriate governing body and also keep a copy of the report in our office. Any time upon your request, a copy will be provided to you.

Among the most important irrigation and health safety features of any Tennessee home is the backflow preventer. This rather small and seemingly unimportant device could actually lead to the problem called backflow, which in turn could cause serious health problems in your community.

To ensure that such a problem would not happen, the federal government imposes the need for backflow preventer certification on Tennessee homeowners.

The Health Risks of Water Backflow

Backflow Preventer Certification

Typically, cities in the U.S. have an interconnected system of pipes delivering potable water supply to thousands of homes. The purpose of backflow preventer devices is to ensure that non-potable water and toxic liquids (sewage water, water used for irrigation, toxic wastes) would not find their way into the pipes and connections supplying drinking water to households.

Almost every potable water supply systems have a specific water pressure to ensure that water for human consumption will only flow in one direction. Backflow normally happens when there’s a sudden change in water pressures in the potable water supply system, or when there are problems in backflow preventer devices that are installed in individual households.

When any or both of these occur, unsafe water could flow in the opposite direction and lead straight into the drinking water line, thereby posing health threats to people. These are the primary reasons why backflow preventers are required in every household.

The Need for Routine Inspection and Certification

As mentioned, a single household with a defective backflow device could compromise the water supply of the entire community. This is the reason why Tennessee and other states in the country require backflow preventer certification, aside from the regular inspection of home water utility installations.

My husband and I recently hired Outdoor Creations do some landscaping at our home. Stephen and his staff were very professional and polite! The design and installation was better than we expected and we would recommend them to anyone. Great job guys! The most impressive part was that after the job was done, they spent an extra hour cleaning up. We've never experienced contractors who did that.
