Backflow System Services in Michigan
In buildings with equipment like sprinkler systems, fire suppression systems, chemical tanks, or boilers that are supplied by the potable water system, a backflow preventer must be in place to protect the potable water from contamination in the event of problems. This can happen whenever the pressure of the potable water system falls below the pressure of the attached system, such as when a water main breaks or an erroneous plumbing connection is made. The backflow preventer stops the flow of water from the sprinkler system, tank, or boiler back to the potable water system, keeping the water clean and safe for both your building and any that share the same public water system.
Backflow systems must be periodically inspected and serviced to ensure that they provide adequate protection for the water supply. At Fire Pros, we provide comprehensive backflow system services for industrial and commercial facilities, including inspections and installations. We serve businesses throughout Michigan, including the Detroit, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Muskegon areas.
Backflow System Inspection & Testing in MI
If the backflow system at your business is not operating properly, contaminated water, bacteria, chemicals, and other substances from fire suppression systems, chemical tanks, manufacturing processes, or boilers could overcome the pressure of the potable water system and contaminate the water supply. Not only is this dangerous for those who may consume the water, but it can also be extremely costly to correct.
Regular inspections of your backflow system help to prevent water contamination and are required by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). At Fire Pros, our experts provide comprehensive testing and inspection services for backflow systems, including:
- Checking backflow prevention vales for proper operation
- Inspecting gaskets, seals, and other wear items for leaks or damage
- Performing stress testing and simulated test runs to ensure proper operation
- Checking the system for proper sizing and application according to supply needs
- Ensuring the installation meets all federal, state, and local codes
