At Certain Plumbing we offer:
Backflow Installations, repair, replacement and testing for Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port, and surrounding areas. Whether you are having a new water service connected to your home, irrigation installed, or have an existing unit we can keep you in compliance with your state and local codes.
Backflow Preventer Purpose
The purpose of the backflow preventer is to eliminate any chance of contamination flowing back to your water supply from a contaminated source. Whether your water supply is your local municipality or a private well pulling water from our aquifer contamination should be a concern.
Testing and Certifications
Depending on your local municipality you may be required to have you Backflow preventer calibrated and re-certified every year or two to keep the unit operating correctly and you will be required to use a certified professional for your testing.
Just like the Backflow preventer we are required to have our testing equipment calibrated every year and have our certification updated every 2-years. We think this alone shows the importance of backflow preventer's working correctly.
