Backflow testing and backflow prevention are important services we provide our Houston clients. Village Plumbing & Air is committed to helping protect your home’s water supply from contamination.
A backflow preventer allows water to flow in one direction—away from your home. If this crucial device fails, contaminated water can back up into your plumbing system. At Village Plumbing, we specialize in backflow testing to assess how your backflow preventer is working. Whether there’s an issue inside or outside your home, we can quickly take action so the water you use for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and bathing is free of waste, dirt, and chemicals.

Backflow is when wastewater reverses flow and reaches clean water supply lines in your home. It can occur at any cross-connection in your plumbing system or outside where a sewer line or water main has ruptured. The pressure can be so strong this wastewater reaches drains, toilets, and other plumbing fixtures and overflows.
The primary causes of backflow include:
In Texas, backflow preventers must be inspected and tested every year. If not, a home or business owner can face heavy fines. Testing must be completed by a licensed professional.
Our team has years of experience in backflow preventer testing. The testing process involves opening and closing valves in the backflow system while taking pressure measurements. We’ll also determine if a backflow preventer activates when it’s supposed to.
The observations taken can help identify any abnormal changes in pressure that may warrant repairing or replacing your backflow preventer.
