Backflow Testing FAQs

What is backflow testing?

Backflow testing is the process of testing your plumbing system to make sure your drinking water is not contaminated with dirty water infiltrating your water supply.

How much does a backflow test cost?

The typical cost for backflow device testing can vary greatly, even within Sonoma County.

Some plumbing companies may charge a one-time fee while other local plumbing companies may provide you a scheduled maintenance plan.

However, the quickest way to get a clear answer according to your needs is to call (707) 544-6444 today.

Why is backflow testing necessary?

To keep your potable water clean from contaminants, it is encouraged to have a regular maintenance plan for your backflow device – no matter if you’re within Santa Rosa city limits or anywhere else throughout the Bay Area.

When your backflow is not functioning correctly, the assembly must be repaired quickly.

How much does it cost to replace a backflow valve?

Backflow parts can cost a consumer anywhere from $45 and $950. And to retrofit onto an existing system, costs for parts alone could be much higher.

For a more accurate cost for your backflow valve, please call (707) 544-6444.

What does a backflow preventer do?

A backflow preventer is a device installed onto your home’s water pipes that allows water to flow in only one direction and never in the opposite direction.

The sole responsibility of your backflow preventer device is to prevent your drinking water from harmful contaminants.

What happens when a backflow preventer fails?

If your backflow preventer fails – or if you’re concerned it might fail – give your local plumbers a call right away to ensure your family’s drinking water remains safe.

What causes a backflow preventer to leak?

A leak from your backflow preventer is most often caused by debris such as sand or dirt coming from the domestic water source getting into the seat of the relief valve and preventing it from shutting all the way.
