Backflow Prevention Services in Bloomington
Servicing Homes Throughout Normal & Surrounding Areas
Both plumbing codes and the EPA require backflow devices known as RPZ valves. These valves help maintain a certain level of purity in potable water systems and prevent contamination of our potable water supplies. For this reason, backflow devices must be tested regularly to ensure they are providing sufficient protection to the public water resources.
RPZ valves are required in both residential and commercial buildings that contain an irrigation system, fire suppression systems or a large boiler. These valves are designed to keep contaminated water from flowing into the drinking water supply during drop in the water pressure of the building or the municipal water mains.
If your home has an RPZ valve, Illinois State Law requires annual testing by a licensed plumber with a Cross Connection Certification License to test and certify the proper operation of the RPZ valve. Once the RPZ is tested, the certification paperwork is forwarded by the plumber to the city.
Covenant Plumbing is a Cross Connection certified plumber with the ability to complete your RPZ backflow testing and Cross Connection device testing.
