Hetherton Backflow Testing
When nearly 2 million gallons of sewage leaked into Grand River in Michigan, there was huge concern regarding the drinking water in the area. Luckily, it did not become contaminated but there was still great cause for concern. Ensuring that sewer does not leak or backflow into potable water is crucial for many reasons. For the town of Hetherton, backflow testing from 45th Parallel is the number one choice to guarantee that your home’s backflow devices are working properly and doing what they are meant to do.
What is backflow?
You may not realize this but there are measures put in place throughout your home’s plumbing system to ensure backflow prevention. Backflow is when reversed pressure causes water or sewer to flow in the wrong direction, which can result in major complications.
When sewage backflows into your clean drinking water it becomes contaminated and no longer safe to drink as it becomes a health and environmental problem. Our trained technicians at 45th Parallel are highly knowledgeable when it comes to plumbing and will come test all your backflow devices to confirm that your home is not at risk.
Protect Yourself and Others
Not only do you need to protect your home’s clean water supply but also the town that you live in. We will test the main connection where the municipal inground system meets with your pipes to make sure the valves are in working order and there is no concern for backflow into the town’s potable water. Our licensed professionals are here to keep you and those around you safe. Backflow assemblies/devices that are not working correctly can result in a serious situation.
During testing, your water will be temporarily shut off but we promise to work around your schedule to find a time that will work best for you so that you aren’t inconvenienced. Some common areas of your plumbing that will be inspected during backflow testing are:
- Clothes washer
- Sprinkler system
- Main connection/valve
- Basement drains
The costs of repairing and cleaning up after an unfortunate sewer reversal can be a nightmare. When 45th Parallel comes to your home for backflow testing, you will feel confident knowing that major plumbing dilemmas are not in your near future.
