Austin Backflow Preventer Service

One of the most helpful ways to protect your property and possessions from fire is to install a fire sprinkler system. However, the burst of water to drown the flames may lead to a rapid drop in water pressure, allowing dirty, used water to flow back into your water supply main. To prevent this potentially harmful backflow, you can install backflow preventers to separate the clean and dirty water.

At Ace Fire Equipment, we work hard to provide you with all types of fire protection—detection, extinguishing, and backflow prevention after the flames are doused. We can service your backflow preventer to prevent the contamination of potable water in order to protect your loved ones and others who rely on a clean water supply in your home or place of business. To learn more, contact an experienced Austin backflow preventer technician from Ace Fire Equipment today at 512-835-2020.

Types of Backflow Preventers

There are several different backflow preventers, including:

  • Air gaps
  • Dual/double check valves
  • Vacuum breakers
