Backflow Services

Backflow prevention is not an option: it’s the law.
Proper backflow prevention protects your and your community’s water supply from contamination. Such contamination can cause illness, rashes, burns, even fatalities.
Backflow occurs when a drop in water pressure forces the water in your pipe to enter the drinking water supply. However, if your backflow prevention device is installed and functioning properly, you will not be responsible for harming the shared water supply.
Should contamination occur, the State of Illinois is responsible for determining the cause of the problem and they are responsible for taking necessary action. Such action can result in costly fines and suits, not to mention damage to one’s commercial or personal reputation. Consumers that use water for irrigation or commercial purposes are responsible for making sure their backflow prevention devices work.
If you are not sure of your backflow prevention device, or simply have any questions, please call us at 618-985-2021. If you practice diligent backflow prevention, then you are ahead of a majority of the population. However, we still encourage you to contact us for a quote, as our rates are very competitive.
