Backflow Preventer Inspection, Repair, & Installation Services in Indiana & Michigan

Your commercial property’s plumbing system plays a vital role in its daily operation. Clean and safe water is essential for restrooms, kitchens, and industrial processes. Backflow preventers play a crucial role in protecting your water supply from contamination caused by backflow, the reversal of water flow that can introduce contaminants into your water supply. 

At Home Comfort Experts, we offer comprehensive commercial backflow preventer inspections, repair, and installation services in Mishawaka (South Bend), Fort Wayne, Valparaiso, Indiana, and Niles, Michigan.

What Is a Backflow Preventer?

A backflow preventer is a mechanical device installed in your plumbing system that prevents contaminated water from flowing back into the clean water supply. This can occur due to pressure changes in the municipal water system or from fire sprinkler systems, boiler filling loops, cooling towers, or landscape irrigation systems.

Why Are Backflow Preventers Important for Commercial Properties?

In Indiana and Michigan, most municipalities require backflow preventers to be installed and tested annually. The exact testing requirements and how often they are tested may vary from location to location, but many require annual inspections by a certified plumber who has passed a backflow preventer class. 

Backflow preventers are required because they:

  • Protect Public Health: Backflow can introduce contaminants into your water supply, which poses a serious health risk to employees, customers, or tenants. 
  • Minimize Liability: If contaminated water reaches the public water supply, backflow events can result in fines and legal repercussions. 
  • Ensure Business Continuity: Shutting down the business while taking care of backflow events can create gaps in service and lead to revenue loss. 
  • Comply with Regulations: Most municipalities require backflow preventers for commercial properties, and failure to comply can result in fines.
