Backflow Preventer Inspection, Testing, Service & Repair in Michigan
When there’s a loss of water pressure in a municipal water line, backflow preventers keep pressurized fire sprinkler water lines from flowing back into the water line. They eliminate the possibility of polluting the municipal water system through cross-contamination and help protect our public waters. Typical causes of reduced water pressure include water main breaks and faulty plumbing connections.
Just like fire sprinkler systems, chemical tanks, and boilers that are supplied by a potable water system, a backflow preventer plays an essential role in a fire suppression system, keeping water clean and safe for both your build’s occupants and any others that share the same public water system.
To ensure your facility’s backflow system provides adequate protection for its water supply, you should have it periodically inspected and serviced. Fire Systems of Michigan provides comprehensive backflow system services such as inspections, repairs, installation, and maintenance for commercial and industrial facilities. For more than 40 years, we’ve served businesses and industries throughout Michigan, handling all aspects of their building fire safety.
Backflow System Inspection & Testing in MI
Michigan requires testable backflow devices to be inspected every three years by a licensed plumbing contractor. When your business’s backflow system stops operating correctly, contaminated water, bacteria, natural gas, chemicals, and other hazardous substances from fire suppression systems and other equipment can overcome the pressure of the potable water system and contaminate the water supply. This is extremely dangerous for people who drink the water and can also be extremely expensive to correct.
Annual backflow prevention testing and maintenance required by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) helps prevent water contamination. The trained experts at Fire Systems of Michigan provide testing and inspection services for backflow systems that ensure your system works properly to avoid fines for non-compliance and interrupted water supply. If we uncover problems during an inspection, we’ll recommend the best repair options for your business and your budget.
