What is a backflow preventer?

Simply put, a backflow preventer keeps clean drinking water from coming into contact with contaminated sources as it flows from one place to another. A faulty backflow preventer can cause a city’s water supply to become contaminated. As a result, people who drink or use the water can become seriously ill.

All commercial buildings must have their backflow preventers inspected annually to ensure the safety of the city’s water supply. To learn more about backflow prevention systems or to schedule your backflow preventer inspection, service, or repair, contact the Austin backflow preventer inspectors of Ace Fire Equipment by calling 512-835-2020.
