Commercial Backflow Services in Lakeland – At Stuart’s Plumbing, we believe that protecting our water supply is everyone’s responsibility. A working backflow prevention system is essential to your plumbing needs because it is used to protect against contamination and pollution.
In water supply systems, water is normally kept at a specific pressure to enable it to flow properly to your tap, shower, faucet, etc. If your backflow preventer is damaged or not working properly, your water pressure could fail. This could also happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze, or there is an unexpectedly high demand on the water system. If this happens and the pressure in the pipe is reduced, it may allow contaminated water from the ground to be drawn into the system and the water to become toxic. This is why our team at Stuart’s Plumbing offers commercial backflow services, including installation, repair, and replacement.
Backflow preventers are required for most commercial properties in Lakeland, Florida as a preventative measure against contaminating the water mains. As part of our commercial backflow services at Stuart’s Plumbing, we can install backflow preventers in many different models and strengths. The most common commercial style is a double check valve, which uses two operating principles. One check valve will still operate, even if the other is jammed open, and the closure of one valve reduces the pressure differential across the other, which allows for a more reliable seal and prevents even minor leaks. The most common residential style looks like an “L” sticking out of the ground and is used in irrigation systems.
As you might have come to realize, making sure that your backflow preventers are working properly is very essential. Backflow preventers are so important that in Polk County, it is required for all businesses to have them officially inspected annually. Not only do they have to be checked every year, but the professionals who test them have to be re-certified every two years. We do this to ensure that our guys at Stuart’s Plumbing stay up-to-date on the current methods and technologies and the correct pressure specifications for all types of valves involved with commercial backflow services. This is why our friendly and knowledgeable plumbers are the preferred backflow testers in the area.
When handling backflow situations, we also work with your water supplier and handle all the necessary forms and paperwork for you, so there is no additional hassle on your part.
