NYC Backflow Prevention & Testing
Securing The Safety Of Your Water In New York City
Backflow is the undesired effect of polluted water being pumped back into your apartment or business's plumbing systems. It's always a great idea to schedule your own backflow testing and prevention, simply to be sure that your water is safe, but usually, your water department will send you a notification that you're due for a test.
What Are The Dangers Of Backflow?
Over the years, large backflow problems have been known to cause widespread, even fatal illnesses. Chicago, for instance, saw a Salmonella outbreak in 1985 that affected over 100,000 people. The truth is that pollutants range in degree, and there is almost no telling what residents could be exposed to.
NYC residents face many possible dangers, including:
- Harmful Bacteria
During a backflow problem, what you want to be flushed and displaced far away from your building ends up recirculating back into your water supply, exposing you to a wide range of toxins. It's important to prevent these crises for the protection of those in your space and those occupying your commercial property.
