Backflow Prevention

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.

    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    If you want a lasting plumbing job done correctly the first time, then James’ Plumbing & Heating are the people to call! Not only was my problem fixed promptly, it was affordable and everything was explained to me in depth and all of my questions were thoroughly answered. Furthermore, the person who fixed my problem (Isaac) called later on in the day to ask if everything was working properly. That type of service is rare nowadays and highly appreciated. James’ Heating & Plumbing will be my go-to for all future plumbing/heating needs. Keep up the great work!

    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    For the third time, I am impressed with your employees. They were on-time, quickly understood my problem and almost immediately discovered that my problem wasn't as bad as I thought. They were courteous with me, explained everything as they researched the problem, and went the extra mile by offering assistance with any other plumbing problems I might have. I feel a big relief that they were able to help me. I think they were terrific.

    Excellent Quality and Value




    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    James' Plumbing replaced our old furnace, added an air conditioner, and installed a new water heater. Over a period of 3 days, James, himself, came by several times per day to get the work started and to check on the progress. He discovered several deficiencies in our old system and corrected them immediately. His employees were all respectful, wore masks, and always left the area clean. I recommend James' Plumbing highly.


    Outstanding Service




    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    They called me back first thing in the morning after I left a non-emergency message late the night before. They fit me in same-day so that our family would have access to a shower for the long holiday weekend. Isaac also noticed that our hot water setting was way too high and adjusted the hot water heater accordingly for safety. James’ has done an emergency call for us on a weekend in the past. They are the best!
