Carpentersville Backflow Testing & Prevention

Ensure Your Backflow Device Is Working Properly: (847) 793-1177

Water distribution systems, when functioning properly, allow water to flow in one direction. This water flows from the supply point to the consumer. When conditions arise from the supplier or consumer, the water flow can become disrupted and cause the water to flow in the wrong direction. This deviation is called backflow, an extremely dangerous condition. More than 10,000 cases of backflow contamination are reported each year.

The Environmental Protection Agency requires local agencies to maintain pure water. As such, local counties and water suppliers require backflow prevention devices to be tested annually. To prevent the flow of potentially contaminated water from entering into your pure, potable water system, contact our Carpentersville plumbing technicians. At Amy Home Services, we provide reliable backflow testing and prevention services.

Common Questions

  • How Can I Prevent Backflow?

    There are four common methods utilized to prevent backflow: air gaps, a double check valve assemble, a pressure vacuum breaker assembly, and a reduced pressure principle assembly. We will assess your backflow condition and help you determine which protection is best for you based on the degree of hazard that your property presents to water supplies. Your local water or sewer authority may also be involved.

  • Am I Required to Install a Backflow Prevention Assembly?

    Federal and State law requires water suppliers to protect their water systems from contamination. Under state regulations, you may be exempt from assembly requirements if you own a single family residence used solely for residential purposes. Commercial and industrial building owners, as well as homeowners who use their residence for multiple purposes, are required to install and maintain backflow prevention assemblies.

  • Who Is Responsible for the Testing & Maintenance?

    It is your responsibility to ensure your backflow assembly is in proper operating condition. You are required to schedule an annual backflow test in order to remain in compliance with the EPA. In order to schedule a backflow test, contact us today. If any repairs or maintenance services are performed, we will retest the assembly and submit the results to your local water or sewer authority.
