San Francisco has a cross-connection control program to protect the City’s drinking water distribution system from contamination caused by backflow
Normal conditions, water from the distribution system flows into a consumer’s premises. When backflow occurs, water from the consumer’s premises flows into the distribution system. If that water is contaminated because of activities on the consumer’s premises (for example, addition of rust-inhibiting chemicals to a boiler or use of photo-processing chemicals), the water can carry contaminants into the distribution system, possibly causing illness or even death
Backflow protection device is required for all homes and businesses in San Francisco that have a potential hazard such as radiant floor heating and some fire or irrigation systems. A properly working and certified Backflow device is necessary in order to protect the public water supply from private water contamination.
Discount Plumbing Rooter provides you one-stop service when it comes to backflow testing and any necessary repairs. Typically, backflow tests take less than one hour, though your water will have to be shut off for that brief time. Once you pass the test, we will attach a certificate tag from the San Francisco Department of Public Health to document your compliance.
In order to simplify your life, we are happy to schedule and maintain annual certification for your property. Give us a call today at 650 991 2100 and let our Backflow Specialists help you with all your backflow certification needs. We proudly serve the entire Peninsula area including Pacifica, Burlingame, Millbrae, Palo Alto and Redwood City, San Francisco ,Burlingame , San Mateo ,
