Backflow Prevention and Testing Services

Backflow prevention devices and systems are required in commercial properties and multi-family buildings, as well as certain single-family residences.

These systems are designed to protect both public and private water supplies by preventing accidental cross-connections between potable and non-potable water.

As a result, many properties across Surprise and the West Valley are required to have a properly working backflow prevention system installed.

Does Your Surprise, AZ Home Require a Backflow Prevention Device?

Not every residential property needs a backflow prevention system. But if your home features an irrigation system (such as lawn sprinklers) or well system, you may be required by the municipality to install a prevention device.

What is Backflow? What Causes It?

Backflow is the result of a cross-connection between wastewater and clean, potable water supplies. Without a backflow prevention system in place, cross-connections can cause the wastewater supply to flow in reverse and enter the city’s water line or your private water supply.

Backpressure and backsiphonage are the main causes of backflow: backpressure typically develops if water pressure in your plumbing system ends up being greater than the water pressure in the city’s main line; backsiphonage, on the other hand, is the result of damage in the municipal water line or an illegally opened fire hydrant.

In both cases, having an efficient backflow prevention system will help keep wastewater or contaminated water out of our potable water supplies.

Installing and Testing Your Backflow Prevention Device

Once installed, backflow prevention devices become a major part of your plumbing system and are responsible for keeping your (and the community’s) water supply safe from harmful cross-connections. This is why it’s important to work with a licensed plumbing professional who is a certified and approved backflow tester in Surprise, AZ.

Our experts at Pridemark Plumbing can help you with all of your backflow prevention needs, from installing new devices to performing required annual testing.

We will assess your needs and make sure an approved device is installed on your property. Once your device is installed, it’s your responsibility to schedule annual testing. You will typically receive a reminder from the city a few weeks before the test is due.

After testing is complete, we will go over the results with you and let you know if any repairs or replacements are needed. We will also send a report of the test to the city so your home or business continues to remain compliant.

I know I am in good hands with Pridemark Plumbing. I finally replaced my 16 year old water heater, and had installed a water softener system with a R/O system. Donny and his crew are prompt, give you all the pricing options, and doesn’t try to sell you to top of the line. He is honest and always makes it clear that if anything you need or any questions you forget to ask that he is just a phone call away.

Donny is a trusted partner in maintaining our household plumbing. We have found that his work is top notch, reliable, warrantied and worry free. He is easy to deal with, informs you of options and provides guidance along the way. Recently Donny came and did a no contact hot water heater and water softener install because we thought we were COVID on the day of our installation. We had hired him to do several installations and he did what he could with no contact and came back the following week when we felt better to complete any in home installations. I feel like I received value for the money i invested in this project. I have known Donny since 2015 and I always feel like his work is professional and he really knows his business.

Donald and an assistant came out to quote fixing the bibb on my outside front water pipe and take off a water sensor. Professional and did the job within the hour. Thank you.

I needed my kitchen sink plumbing repaired including a new disposal. They were able to send someone the next day. Donny was prompt, clean, respectful and did the work quickly plus he gave me three options to choose from! Their communication was top notch throughout the process. Would highly recommend them and will use them again if ever needed.

The pipe bringing water into my house was leaking so I contacted Pridemark, scheduled an appointment, and… service Expert Donald arrived on time! The problem was diagnosed, a fair price was quoted, and the repair was made promptly, professionally, and with a 2-year warranty. I highly recommend that you contact Pridemark Plumbing when you need high quality plumbing service in the Surprise, Arizona area.
