Pittsburgh Backflow Testing
In the world of plumbing and sanitation, backflow prevention devices are one of the most little-known pieces of equipment out there. In spite of this, backflow prevention plays a vital role in making sure that our drinking water remains clean and free of dangerous impurities, especially in large facilities like apartment buildings, restaurants and hotels. In fact, backflow prevention testing is usually required by municipal governments, and many businesses need to make sure that their backflow testing records are updated annually at the city service offices.
When we turn on the tap to get water, many of us don’t realize that there exists a distinct possibility that unhealthy chemicals and sewage could contaminate our lateral water lines from the main sewer line that they connect to. At Mitchell Plumbing, Heating & Cooling we install and maintain backflow prevention devices are specially designed pieces of equipment that make sure waste, chemicals and gases do not come out of the main sewer lines and back into your fresh water supply. If properly installed and serviced, backflow prevention devices help guarantee that your entire building will have clean, fresh drinking water free of hazardous contaminants.

Q: What are the differences between backflow prevention devices?
A: For most installations, DEP specifies approved air gap RPZ backflow preventers on main incoming water services. Yet there are many cases in which check valves and vacuum breakers are practical and acceptable.
Q: Must backflow prevention devices be provided on all incoming water services?
A: Yes, with few exceptions. However, a professional engineer is needed to determine which is the correct application for each service, i. e. domestic, sprinkler, combination domestic/fire protection, etc. The installation of the wrong device can prove quite costly.
