Backflow device testing is also known as cross-control prevention devices. It is a health and safety device that is most commonly installed at the water meter of any commercial, industrial, and intuitional building and, in some cases, residential properties. This device helps to protect the municipal water supply from any possible cross-contamination and may also be required to help protect the potable water system inside a building from any possible contamination infecting the occupants. These devices need to be tested once a year for the city of Cambridge in order to stay compliant. Failing to get your backflow devices tested could result in the water being turned off to your building and/or fined. For fast testing appointments, call us today.
A cross-control survey is required once every three years for the city of Cambridge. This service involves an inspection of the entire plumbing system to confirm if the current protection is acceptable or if further backflow prevention devices are required.
A new backflow preventer device may be required if you have made any alterations, renovations, or added water using appliances and/or equipment to your building or space. If you have been notified by the city of Cambridge that you need to have a new backflow preventer installed, call us for fast and affordable installation.
Every now and then, a backflow prevention device will fail when it is being tested. It can either require a good cleaning, replacement parts or a new device to be installed in its place. Why do these devices fail and when they will fail is a very difficult thing to predict. It could be due to water quality, water pressure, proper installation, or just wear and tear as they are mechanical devices, they aren’t likely to last forever some may last much longer than others. When we encounter this situation, our first step is to always take the most cost-effective approach for our customers and try cleaning or repairing the device, as this could save you unnecessary expenses. If those attempts are unsuccessful, your backflow preventer will mostly need to be replaced. We have the knowledge, experience and equipment to do so as quickly and affordably as possible. So rest assured you will be getting excellent service when calling us.
