    Backflow Prevention Services in Miami

    Many people do not understand what a backflow preventer or backflow certification is. A backflow preventer is a device that keeps contaminated water from entering into drinking water systems. Backflow prevention is required by municipalities for office buildings, apartment buildings, condominiums, restaurants, hotels, etc. All backflows must be certified annually as directed by The Safe Drinking Water Act and Rule.

    Douglas Orr Plumbing, Inc. is an established state-certified backflow preventer company. Its licensed backflow prevention technicians are capable of installing, testing, and certifying backflows in Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Broward and Palm Beach.  Keeping accurate records is an essential part of a successful backflow prevention program and that is exactly what the service department of Douglas Orr Plumbing, Inc. does.

    Backflow Certification Process:

    The user receives a letter from the city that tells them that they have to install a backflow or certify the ones they have. The user calls Douglas Orr Plumbing, Inc. it then: Sends out a licensed backflow technician to install or certify the backflow. Fills out and submits all of the proper paperwork for the city. Automatically enrolls the customer in their backflow program who will be notified each year by a Douglas Orr Plumbing, Inc. representative who informs them it is time to recertify their backflow.

    If a backflow device does not pass inspection, the customer is given a quote to either repair or replace the backflow.
