What Causes Backflow?
There are several issues that can cause backflow to occur in your home or commercial property. Most commonly, backflow is caused when there is an interruption in the flow of water or if the water pressure in the system is higher than the pressure of the water supply. This causes the water to siphon backward and results in contamination of your water supply. Backflow is dangerous because it happens without warning and does not always show significant signs and symptoms. If backflow has occurred in your home, business or neighborhood clubhouse, people may be exposed to contaminated drinking water that is unsafe to consume, resulting in illness.

Charlotte Residential Backflow Testing for Irrigation Systems
Many Charlotte homes have backflow devices installed to protect their homes from the risk of backflow. However, there is the possibility that these devices could malfunction or fail, leaving your home at risk for backflow. Testing the device to make sure it’s up to code is the best way to make sure your device is always working efficiently.
Most residential cases we see involve Charlotte irrigation systems. We provide backflow testing services to ensure code requirements have been met. When needed, we provide backflow installation or repair services and provide test results which are then submitted to the county to show your home is up to code.
When we test your device, we will temporarily turn off the water and examine the built-in testing ports on the backflow device. At that point, we will then use a professional kit to test the water and effectiveness of your backflow device.

Charlotte Commercial Backflow Testing and Certification
Commercial and industrial backflow testing is necessary for irrigation, fire sprinkler, and building water supply sources. Annual testing is recommended. Make sure you are up to code and in compliance with all regulations with a backflow inspection.
Common Backflow Problems
E.R. Services performs a lot of backflow testing, repair, and replacement. Why? Backflow assemblies get stolen for copper and brass, since these precious metals fetch a good price. Backflow assemblies may also freeze from neglect — especially irrigation systems and clubhouses that are shut down for the winter. Both residential and commercial irrigation systems should be drained and winterized to protect them from freezing. All backflows should be tested annually.
