Backlow TestingBackflow testing is one of the many professional plumbing services that Rick’s Plumbing Service offers. This kind of testing makes sure that the water flowing through your faucets is pure and clear of pollutants that can cause a variety of health problems. Rick’s Plumbing Service is anindustry-leading plumbing company with 15 years of experience in backflow inspection. Even if your water looks clean, there’s a chance that you could have a backflow problem that’s compromising the purity and safety of your water. Let one of our reliable and experienced technicians come out to your home to make sure that there isn’t any backflow coming from your sprinkler systems or waste water.

What is Backflow Testing?

Your home has a reduced pressure zone, or RPZ. The RPZ acts as a backflow prevention device that makes sure that the water flowing into your home plumbing system is free of contaminants. Those contaminants, also known as backflow, flow in the reverse direction into your home’s regular water supply.

At Rick’s Plumbing Service, our licensed technicians specialize in:

  • Conducting annual backflow RPZ testing
  • RPZ inspection
  • Backflow prevention device maintenance
In the event that the backflow testing reveals that your RPZ valve isn’t working the way that it should, you’ll need to have repairs done on it. The backflow prevention device has to be taken apart, thoroughly cleaned out, and reassembled in order to get it working correctly. If you have backflow RPZ testing done and it’s determined that the prevention device can’t be repaired, it will have to be replaced instead. The only time a backflow prevention device has to be replaced is when it’s been damaged or exposed to extreme temperatures. Since prevention is always easier than repair, you’ll want to make sure that you have your RPZ valve properly inspected every year as recommended.

All of our technicians are licensed and knowledgeable on the very latest industry practices in backflow RPZ testing. Our services are insured to make sure that any work we do on your backflow prevention device and RPZ valve is done in a safe and efficient manner. When you work with Rick’s Plumbing Service, you can be sure that you’re working with a team of reliable plumbers who are committed to delivering youexpert plumbing services and the very best in customer service.

The Benefits of a Backflow Inspection

When you have a backflow inspection done, you can take care of a major plumbing problem and prevent future plumbing problems as well. If backflow does happen to find its way into your shower water or faucet water, it will pollute and contaminate your water supply. A pollutant is a harmful substance that changes either the color or the smell of water, but isn’t an actual threat to your health. A contaminant, on the other hand, can possibly cause either illness or death if a person were to ingest it. Keep your family safe with regular backflow inspections and backflow testing.

A Rick’s Plumbing Service technician will come out to your home completely prepared with a fully-stocked service truck with all of the equipment and plumbing tools necessary to take care of your inspection and testing as well as address any problems that your RPZ valve might be having. Backflow is a serious problem, and we don’t want to waste any time getting anything other than fresh water flowing through your home’s plumbing system.
