Santa Fe Backflow Prevention Services
Do You Need Backflow Prevention Service in Santa Fe?
Are you familiar with the concept of backflow? Backflow is when water flows in the wrong direction through your plumbing system. Instead of freshwater feeding through your home’s system and into the wastewater system, the wastewater flows up into your freshwater system.
This usually occurs when there is an increase in pressure on the wastewater side or a drop in pressure on the freshwater side.
Backflow is dangerous because it allows contaminated water loaded with dangerous bacteria into water used for household activities, such as drinking, cooking, and cleaning. For this reason, most businesses and some residential buildings have a backflow prevention device installed. The backflow preventer has a check valve in place that stops the water from moving in the wrong direction.
In most cases, your single family home doesn’t have a backflow preventer because there are few cross-connections where the potential for freshwater and wastewater to connect to each other. Your dishwasher is one of the few appliances where backflow can occur, and as such has a backflow prevention system built into them.
But that changes when commercial locations grow in size. With commercial locations, you have more activity. That means more conditions can create a backflow event, such as:
- An owner or worker draining out a portion of the building to make a repair
- A broken water main or distribution pipe
- Widespread power outages
- Fire fighters using large quantities of water
- Equipment utilizing large quantities of water that create pressure greater than those present in the distribution system
Because commercial locations are more at risk, it’s a necessity to have a backflow preventer in place. On a regular basis, the city sends out notification that the device requires testing. This is a job for professionals. For your backflow preventer to pass the test, you must have a certified professional plumber conduct the test. If it doesn’t, it’s either time to repair it or replace it.
Our plumbers can take care of both the testing and the repairing or replacement of your backflow preventer. We’ll make sure your business isn’t at risk, and that it doesn’t suffer being shut down because of a backflow prevention device violation.

James very quickly provided a fair and accurate quote for 2 new evaporative coolers installed. He and his team completed the job in good time and did not hesitate to stay late to make this happen. We had some water come into the house during a bad storm and James was fast on the scene. Clearly the water was not from the cooler installation and he provided photos of the true culprit! I highly recommend James Plumbing and Heating for his professional service and outstanding customer care!
Isaac was great! Explained everything to me in great detail and fixed the problem. Had the company who installed the unit in twice and they couldn’t

Daren - Santa Fe, NM
Thomas was a very pleasant young man but his work has left us with very little hot water pressure in the kitchen. I guess I should have pushed for a like kind replacement valve instead of the option he had available.

JS - Santa Fe, NM
James’ Plumbing (Isaac) helped us a lot with a sewer line replacement. Super professional: great work, great communication. They worked very late to finish the job. We would have been without water for the night, so we really appreciate the extra effort. Based on our experience, we recommend them highly.
Excellent Service, Best in Class
S. S. Hickey - Santa Fe, NM
Why would I say this is EXCELLENT SERVICE and BEST IN CLASS? Here’s why. After some comparison shopping, James Plumbing was the only company to describe PNM rebates and various coolant models for our consideration. Their prices were the best competitive prices. This is a wonderful family-run business, beginning with Priscella’s phenomenal responsive phone calls and the teams’ (Dominic, Isaac, and James) outstanding inspection and installation! The pride in their work truly shines!
