Backflow Prevention Devices (Backflow Preventors) are necessary for any property and are essential for the safety of your employees, tenants and their customers and/or visitors.
These assemblies prevent potable water from being contaminated through infiltration of stagnant water or other unwanted infiltration from industrial or fire protection piping.
Proper maintenance and repair of all your prevention devices can prevent illness and keep your occupants safe and free of needless illness.

Under Public Law 99-339 (the Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1986), every supplier has the primary responsibility for preventing water from unapproved sources from entering public potable water systems.
