Back Flow Prevention Valves
At Tomlinson Plumbing, we are licensed to provide advice on, assess, install, test, and maintain back flow prevention valves.
Many commercial and industrial properties are required by the Water Boards to have back flow prevention devices installed, which makes sure our water is safe for drinking, bathing and processing food.
Back flow occurs when water flows opposite to its normal or intended direction. Installing a back flow prevention device/valve, ensures that water from a property cannot be drawn back into the main drinking supply, preventing potential pollutants from causing contamination.
Valves need to be tested and serviced every 12 months.
