New York State Certified Back Flow Testing

Backflow prevention systems can be provided in many ways, but basically it keeps potential contaminated water from other sources from contaminating your internal potable water supply, as well as keeping the public sources of water safe for drinking.

When pressure fails or is reduced (as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system) the pressure in the pipe may be reduced and may allow contaminated water from the irrigation system, boiler, a sprinkler system, or from other sources to be drawn into the potable water supply system.

Absolute Fire Protection inspectors are experts on testing and maintaining backflow prevention systems. It is required by NY State Department of Health and local authorities that your system is inspected at least once a year to minimize the liability of your facility contaminating the public water supply. Absolute Fire Protection has a large staff of NYS Certified Backflow Inspectors that can help you meet that requirement. We have gone one step further to have our technicians take advanced training in repair so we can also repair your device.

Quick FAQ....

I have a standpipe system with two risers. The original design indicates a total flow of 750 gpm (2839 Lpm). Am I required to flow this much water for the five year flow test?

No. When conducting the five year flow test, one riser is tested at a time. Therefore, the flow should be a total of 500 gpm (1892 Lpm), 250 gpm (946 lpm) for each of the two topmost outlets.
