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.

    Great service all around




    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    Isaac and Thomas completed our job in a short amount of time and were very professional. At the completion of the job, Isaac troubleshooted an issue that could occur with our boiler. He even had the part on hand, and replaced the part, saving us another service call in the future. All in all, a great job by both Isaac and Thomas! We will definitely continue to use James Plumbing for our plumbing needs.

    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    We made the switch to natural gas and decided to replace our water heater and boiler. James came out and gave me an informed opinion and a reasonable estimate. Isaac was the technician who did the work. He was also knowledgeable, friendly and reliable. They made quick work of the job and we're willing to answer any questions.

    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    Today was my lucky day. After 10 years in Santa Fe, this was the first truly positive experience with a plumber/plumbing company! Isaac Martinez—to be more specific. I had an electrician install a light with an exhaust fan in my bathroom ceiling, but I needed a plumber to vent it through the roof. Before today, every plumber I had hired was a disappointment—from bad workmanship to poor attitude, overcharging and dishonesty, so I was dreading another nightmare. I held my breath and called the company with the best online reviews —James’ Plumbing. I left a message, expecting to never hear back, but the receptionist called me within 2 hours and scheduled me for the next day, between 12:00 and 2:00. I got a call from the plumber the next morning, saying that he’d had a cancellation and asking whether he could come sooner. He also asked about the job to be done so he could gage how long it would take. He showed up 45 minutes later, clean, polite, in Covid mask and work uniform and introduced himself as Isaac. He took a look at the bathroom, went to gather the necessary supplies and got straight to work. Isaac finished the job in about two hours. His work was neat with minimal plaster damage and the bathroom was left clean. He took me up on the roof to show me the vent—everything meticulously and professionally done. I was shocked and delighted. He handed me a detailed, printed invoice, which I paid with a check. He then emailed me a copy of the invoice. He also referred me to a plaster repairman—It’s my lucky day! I will definitely call James’ Plumbing again...and ask for Isaac Martinez!

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.

    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.
