Why is backflow prevention important?

Backflow prevention is important in order to protect a city’s drinking water supply from dangerous contamination. Drinking water normally flows through different pipes and connections than non-potable water, but a faulty backflow preventer can draw dangerous water sources back into the drinking water system. Contaminated drinking water sources can cause widespread illness, and therefore annual backflow preventer inspections are required by law.

To keep the city’s water supply safe, entrust your backflow prevention system installation and maintenance to the Austin backflow preventer inspection experts of Ace Fire Equipment. Contact our offices today at 512-835-2020.
