Backflow Prevention Systems Stop The Contamination Of Your Water Supply in Kent, WA

Backflow poses a major problem, as water from fire sprinkler systems can contain dangerous metals, microorganisms, and chemicals that could also pose serious health risks if introduced to the surrounding drinking water supply. The backflow preventer is put in place to safeguard against non-potable fire sprinkler system water from flowing back into your drinking water supply.

Backflow can occur both in your building’s water system, where the fire sprinkler system is housed and in the town’s or city’s general water supply. This may happen when pressure from the municipal water supply line is substantially reduced or lost.

How often does my backflow prevention system need to be inspected and maintained in Washington state?

In Washington state, backflow prevention systems typically require annual inspections and maintenance to comply with state regulations. The Washington State Department of Health mandates regular inspections to safeguard the public water supply from contamination risks posed by backflow events. Professional plumbers certified in backflow prevention are typically responsible for conducting these inspections, testing the system, and performing any necessary repairs or adjustments to maintain compliance and protect water quality. Regular maintenance helps prevent backflow incidents and ensures the continued safety of the water supply.

Why Do I Need Regular Testing & Maintenance?

There are national, state and local regulations for the installation and function of backflow preventers, all of which must be met according to strict standards.

Testing should be done annually to test flushing components and test valves. Testing is the ultimate way to ensure that the system functions properly and is not at risk of contaminating other water supplies. It is important for regular maintenance to be performed because this roots out any small problems before they potentially become, bigger, more expensive issues.

Northwest Fire Systems is licensed to provide all of the maintenance, testing and inspection needs of your backflow prevention system. We are aware of all applicable regulations and exactly when they must be met, so that you don’t have to keep track of processes that keep your system compliant.
