Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 12, 2013 -- Consumers turn their faucets on every day and assume safe drinking water is immediately available. However, when water pressure fails or is reduced, contaminated water from the ground, storage, or other systems can be drawn into the water supply.
To prevent this occurrence, backflow devices are needed. For example, lawn irrigation systems need a vacuum breaker backflow preventer to protect against lawn and pesticide chemicals being drawn in from the lawn and back into the drinking water supply. The University of Southern California Foundation for Cross –Connection Control and Hydraulic Research conducted a study to determine the degree of protection against backflow that is present in today’s homes. They found that nearly 10 percent of residences had direct health hazard cross-connections.
“We saw backflow water prevention as a high priority need for public safety,” explains John C. Lesmeister, owner of Jo-Nan Plumbing Backflow Testing. “We started off as a sewer and water contractor and then grew into a full service plumbing company by 1989; however, we decided to specialize in water safety and backflow prevention when we realized the importance to the community’s water supply.”
Their new website, http://www.jonanbackflowtesting.com/, details their backflow services which include testing, installation and service, and repair.
“Backflow devices are the most common types of devices used on fire sprinkler systems, lawn irrigation systems, and on potable water supply for buildings that are required by local code,” John explains. “These devices need to be tested annually once a year.” The company offers savings per test for clients who sign a two-, three-, and five-year testing agreement and guarantees a set price that will not change during the duration of the agreement.
Jo-Nan Plumbing Backflow Testing keeps up-to-date with the latest backflow devices and installs and services residential homes, apartments, condos, duplexes, and commercial buildings including hotels, restaurants, medical buildings, and shopping malls. “We work directly with business owners, property management companies, home owners and offer fair, competitive pricing,” John says.
If a backflow device does not pass an annual inspection, only a state licensed plumbing contractor with a CCCDI (Cross Contamination Control Device Inspector) license is qualified to disassemble the devices for service and repair. Jo-Nan Plumbing Backflow Testing meets these requirements and can repair backflow devices, which saves time and money.
