Expert Backflow Testing for New York City

Backflow Device Testing to Keep Your Property in Compliance

Properties throughout New York City must install backflow prevention devices to maintain the safety of the potable water supply. If you have one of these devices, it must be tested every year by a certified tester. HBNY Plumbing & Heating has the required training to handle your NYC backflow testing needs.

Don’t Put Off Your Backflow Prevention Testing to the Last Minute

Approved backflow prevention assembly devices protect against back siphonage and back pressure. This preventive measure is important in any location with the potential to produce chemical or biological impurities. Restaurants, nursing homes, hospitals, and many large residential buildings are required to install backflow prevention equipment.

Since all affected buildings need an annual inspection from a certified tester, it is critical to get your inspection scheduled. Failing to submit an annual report can lead to a $500 fine for non-compliance and eventually, shutting off your water service. Thankfully, HBNY Plumbing & Heating is certified and prepared to handle your backflow inspection needs.
