What Is Backflow Testing?
Backflow testing is a critical procedure designed to ensure that your irrigation system is functioning correctly and that your drinking water remains free of contamination. At Conserva Irrigation of Traverse Mountain, we specialize in certified backflow prevention, providing comprehensive irrigation backflow inspection and backflow system maintenance to both residential and commercial properties in Lehi, UT, 84043.
The Importance of Certified Backflow Prevention
Backflow occurs when there's a reversal in the flow of water, potentially allowing contaminants to enter your clean water supply. This can happen due to changes in water pressure within the system. Certified backflow prevention is not just a recommendation—it's a necessity for safeguarding your health and adhering to local backflow testing requirements.
