A backflow prevention device is used to protect water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow.
In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower etc. When pressure fails or is reduced as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, the pressure in the pipe may be reduced and may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn into the system.
Many commercial establishments and businesses are required by city municipalities to have backflow prevention devices that will have to be inspected each year. If your business needs to have a backflow prevention device installed or your existing backflow prevention device is in need of its yearly certification, Kannapolis Service Company can help.
