Backflow can occur when pressure in the distribution system drops or when unprotected water supply lines are attached to a container or pipe that has substances not suitable for drinking. These conditions could affect the flow inside water lines resulting in contamination of customers’ drinking water.
Compliance officers are responsible for enforcing the CFPUA ordinance requiring backflow prevention assemblies for all commercial, industrial, and irrigation customers. All backflow prevention assemblies are inspected and tested upon initial installation and are required to be re-tested annually. Contact Parlier Plumbing Services, LLC today to set up an appointment!
