Clean water is an absolute necessity. That’s why, from owning a restaurant to managing an apartment complex, your commercial building needs a way to successfully shield customers, employees and other visitors from the hazards of unsanitary H2O—or else.
It’s time to start protecting your business’s water—and the team at Winfrey Plumbing Inc. can help. Through our reliable backflow prevention and testing services, our company will help you keep your water supply safe and clean—whatever your H2O needs may be.
Commercial spaces need clean water—no matter what. However, without the right protection, clean water for a store, restaurant or other commercial space can turn dangerous—quickly. But thankfully, backflow prevention services can protect your H2O so it won’t fall into deep water.
Backflow occurs when an unexpected or drastic change in water pressure redirects dirty water away from its intended course—leaving your commercial pipes—and steers it up the more dangerous route—directly into your commercial space’s clean water lines. If not caught right away, this serious health hazard is detrimental to the wellbeing of your business’s H2O and puts your customers’ and employees’ health in harm’s way.
Dirty water flowing out of your commercial property is most likely tainted with a slew of contaminants, including:
These hazardous materials are contaminants that should never enter your clean water—or your body.
Since backflow typically occurs at the point where drinkable and non-drinkable water meet, it’s essential that your commercial building is equipped with a device to prevent backflow from occurring. This system contains a pair of mechanical check valves that keep clean and dirty water separate—preventing contaminants and pollutants from sinking the health of your clean H2O.
In fact, most municipal codes require commercial spaces to install a backflow prevention device at each of its plumbing systems’ cross-connection points.
After a backflow prevention device is installed, you are in charge of retaining its reliability. At Winfrey Plumbing, our team can help you keep your system operating properly. To do this, our certified plumbers will inspect your system to keep it in compliance with local codes, to protect your business from any unsanitary disasters and to ensure your clean water is just that: clean.
Although our team will inspect your backflow preventer after it’s installed, keep in mind that it’s your responsibility to inspect it every year after that.
So, rather than letting the safety of your H2O tread into dangerous territory, trust our team to guide you toward better water protection—day in and day out.
