How Do You Know If It’s Time For A Backflow Test?

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” – Michael Altshuler

There is no doubt that time flies. Time is a gift, but it’s a gift that needs managed well in order to utilize it to its maximum potential. If time has passed and you’re wondering if it’s time for a backflow test, there are some telltale signs that you can consider.

What is Backflow?

In order to understand the importance of a backflow test, it’s helpful to know exactly what it is. It is the reverse flow of nonpotable water, or other substances, through a cross-connection and into your potable water system.

Is it time for a backflow test?

If you can’t remember the last time you had a backflow test, it’s probably time for one. Many experts suggest a yearly service appointment. It is also time to schedule your backflow test if your water appears to be discolored or cloudy. A visible leak on the backflow assembly will be a signal as well.

Why do you need a backflow test?

The simple reason you need a backflow test is to ensure that you or your customers are not consuming water that has been contaminated by backflow in your home or business. Contaminated water has the potential to cause serious health issues.
