Understanding Backflow and Its Testing Process

Backflow refers to the reversal of water flow in your plumbing system, which can lead to contamination of your clean water supply. This typically happens when there is a significant change in pressure within your plumbing system, causing dirty water from irrigation systems, pools, or even toilets to be drawn back into your clean water supply. It can also be caused by a sudden change in pressure coming from your municipal water source. 

Here are a few signs that your plumbing system may be affected by backflow:

  • Changes in water pressure
  • Discoloration of water
  • Foul smell from the water
  • Unusual taste in the drinking water
  • Illness among residents or staff linked to water-borne diseases

Our experienced plumbers at 24/7 Rooter & Plumbing use state-of-the-art equipment to measure the pressure of your water supply and check any backflow prevention devices installed in your system. The testing process is quick and efficient, ensuring the least possible disruption to your daily routine.

Why Backflow Testing is Required in San Francisco and the South Bay

Backflow testing is not just a preventive measure, but a requirement. In addition to local laws, California state law, and California state plumbing codes, once installed, backflow devices must be inspected annually. Regular backflow testing is a proactive measure that enables early detection and resolution of any issues, thereby maintaining the safety and quality of your water supply.

The risks associated with not conducting regular backflow testing include:

  • Potential Health Risks: Contaminated water can lead to a variety of waterborne diseases, posing a significant health risk to residents and staff.
  • Damage to Property: Severe backflow incidents can cause water damage to your property, leading to costly repairs and renovations.
  • Contamination of Water Supply: Without regular testing, contaminants can seep into the water supply unnoticed, impacting not just your property, but potentially affecting the wider community as well.
  • Violation of State and City Regulations: As backflow testing is mandated by local authorities, failure to comply can result in fines and penalties.
