Backflow Testing Services in Denver

Have you had your backflow prevention assembly tested yet this year? Call Bell Plumbing and Heating at (303) 757-5661 to schedule immediate backflow testing services in Denver.

If your property has a backflow prevention system installed, annual testing is required in order to remain in compliance with local regulations.

Need to make an appointment for testing? Contact Bell Plumbing and Heating to work with our certified Denver backflow testers. We can also help you plan and install a new backflow prevention system, as well as repair your current system.

What is Backflow? How Does It Happen?

Backflow occurs when clean drinking water becomes contaminated with wastewater. This happens with a reverse in water flow, which is caused by backpressure or backsiphonage.

When the water pressure in your plumbing system is greater than the water pressure in the city’s main line, backpressure occurs. When this happens, contaminated water from your plumbing line enters the municipal system and affects the water quality of the surrounding area.

Backsiphonage is similar: when there is a change in water pressure (often caused by a water main break or a fire hydrant being opened incorrectly), contaminated water will flow in the opposite direction and mix with the city’s potable water supply.

This is why it’s essential to have the proper backflow prevention systems in place.

What Kinds of Properties Need a Backflow Prevention Assembly?

Although backflow prevention systems are most often installed in commercial buildings, some residential properties are also required to have these systems in place—particularly if your home features cross-connections between your plumbing system and the municipal water line.

Properties featuring the following systems will be required to install backflow prevention assemblies:

  • Irrigation systems (lawn sprinklers)
  • Fire suppression systems
  • Pools or ponds
  • Commercial-grade boilers (typically found in multi-family buildings)

The above water systems can potentially result in cross-connections and introduce contaminants such as chemicals, chlorine, pesticides, and even human waste into the community’s potable water supply.

Bell Plumbing and Heating is here to help you install the right type of backflow prevention assembly to help your property remain in compliance with county regulations. We can provide you with county-approved backflow devices, including:

  • Double check assemblies
  • Double check detector assemblies (fire suppression)
  • Lead-free reduced pressure principle assemblies (residential water lines)

Contact Our Certified Denver Backflow Testers Today

Expect a notice from the county reminding you to schedule backflow testing; this is often mailed to you forty-five days before the deadline.

Call Bell Plumbing and Heating for immediate service. We will perform a thorough inspection of your backflow prevention system, including checking for valve leaks. If there are issues with your device, we will alert you to the problem and carry out the necessary repairs.

After completing the test, we will fill out a report and submit it to the county. The entire testing process typically takes thirty minutes to complete if there are no pre-existing issues with your system.

Make sure your home or business continues to comply with local regulations—contact us today at (303) 757-5661 to schedule service with our certified Denver backflow testers.
