Backflow Systems Inspection in Pennsylvania
Fire sprinkler systems are an imperative part of keeping your commercial property safe in the event of a fire. However, despite what you might expect, the water supply contained within a sprinkler system is not guaranteed to be free of contaminants. It is absolutely critical that your sprinkler system’s water does not integrate with the municipal water supply or your business’s personal potable water supply.
This is why backflow prevention systems installed within a sprinkler setup are so important. Backflow systems must be installed, inspected consistently, and repaired in the event of damage. Liberty Fire Solutions is your comprehensive provider of all fire protection services in Central Pennsylvania, including backflow systems inspection related services.

How Frequently Do Backflow Prevention Systems Require Inspection?
Once a backflow prevention device has been installed, it should require very little in terms of frequent servicing. The system involves little more than a valve and piping. However, the simplicity of the device can be deceptive, as it puts backflow preventers very much on the “out of sight, out of mind” list for many business owners. But backflow can happen at any time should your system fail, and you may not even know it until the contaminated water has been used or consumed in your business.
Backflow prevention systems should be professionally inspected and tested once a year at a minimum. Testing includes utilizing the backflow systems integrated testing ports, which allow a technician to tap into the system and use an approved testing kit to verify proper function. Testing and inspection also include component visual inspections, checks for signs of contamination and corrosion, and more.
Liberty Fire Solutions can not only provide routine backflow prevention system inspections and tests, but also keep track of your needs in order to ensure you receive testing as needed. This way your business can be secure in the fact that you are remaining OSHA compliant, and that your business is not risking cross-contamination.
