" Tyler came to address an issue with our kitchen sink clogging. He was prompt, professional and explained everything he was doing. It was a pleasure having him in our home. He did a thorough job and we believe he went above and beyond in making sure our issue was resolved to our satisfaction. I'd feel more than comfortable referring Tyler to friends. "

" We dealt with Ben, Nija, and Jacob today and all three were great!!! Honest, professional, and informative is what we got from them. They also answered all of our questions with no hesitation and provided great all around service. Hopefully we don’t have to see them soon, but if someone else does, I’d highly recommend this group. Thanks for everything! "

" The call to schedule an appointment was pleasant and choices were offerred. The technicians called on the day of the appointment to let us know when to expect them, arrived and went straight to work after being briefed and given a tour. The inspection and work was accomplished in a timely manner. The charge was less than I expected. I requested and received an estimate for additional work in a timely manner "

" The entire process from calling and talking to a live person at 7:30am to the call telling me a technician was on the way to the service call itself was very smooth. Mike B, my technician, was courteous and professional. He diagnosed the problem and completed the service in a quick but thorough way. I was very pleased with the service and would use them again. BTW price was fair as well. "

Backflow Testing + Certification

A backflow prevention device protects safe drinking water that is free of pollution or contamination caused by backflow. Backflow is the reversed flow of water (or industrial fluids) into distribution pipes. At Savannah Rooter Man we are licensed to install and check these devices for state wide compliance.

Many industrial Industrial and commercial places need backflow systems, including:

  • Laboratories
  • Clinics
  • Car washes
  • Food processing
  • centers
  • Medical centers
  • And more!

But it’s not just commercial and industrial sites that need backflow testing and installation. Here are two residential instances when a backflow system should be installed and checked regularly.

If you have a home irrigation system

Backflow of pesticides and fertilizers can occur if you have a sudden drop in water pressure. Hose-attached sprinklers and spray nozzles are also a risk and should be fitted with a hose connection vacuum breaker. Call your Savannah plumber for expert advice on your irrigation system, and to see if yours needs a backflow preventer.

Contaminant-free water is the goal of any water distribution service. Savannah backflow testing and certification is the answer. Call (912) 430-8597.

if you have a home with an in-ground pool

Your pool can do damage to the Savannah public water distribution system if you leave a hose in it. You should have an approved backflow device installed to prevent any problems.

What is a backflow preventer?

Backflow preventers are mechanical devices that are fitted with one-way check valves that prevent water from backing up into your supply line. Put simply, water can only flow in the one direction through these valves. Our trained and certified Savannah plumbers install all types of backflow preventers and we know where to place them for ease of repair and testing.

What causes backflow in savannah?

There are two primary causes of backflow. First, the pressure in your plumbing system may be higher than the pressure in the Savannah water distribution system. Second, the flow of water can reverse when there is low pressure on the distribution system. Back siphonage can also occur if there is a spike in demand from a mains break.

Testing backflow prevention devices

Backflow preventers are mechanical devices and all mechanical devices can fail. Annual testing is vital to make sure your unit is running at optimum levels. It is also required by law to test your unit every year so no harm comes to our Savannah community water supply.

Savannah, GA Rooter Man plumbers can keep your water fresh and safe with our approved and recommended backflow treating equipment. Don’t delay and Call (912) 430-8597 to speak to one of our agents.
