Hillsborough Backflow Test
Hillsborough, like many states and communities have requirements for anti-backflow devices and auxiliary water systems to prevent contaminated water from flowing back into potable water systems. When public water systems deal with a loss of water pressure the result can be contaminated water flowing into to system. Private systems like walls can also lose pressure and contaminated water can flow back into the ground water, which can thus contaminate many more water sources. When a device installed in a system to prevent against these from happening, there are typically laws in place that require regular testing and maintenance of the device.

Our Hillsborough Backflow Testing Company Wants You To Understand What Backflow Is
Not every single water system requires the use of a special backflow preventer. If your water system lacks an unusual or special equipment (such as a lawn sprinkler, fire sprinkler system, etc.) you may not need to install a backflow preventer in your home. For many households the only backflow preventers needed are standard water faucets and toilets, since the air gap created by the faucet or the toilet bowl effectively prevent any backflow from the sewage system in case of loss of water pressure. Often times, most businesses only have one or two restrooms, and possibly a separate sink elsewhere. Buildings with so few plumbing devices typically do not require any special backflow preventers.
