Backflow Preventers for Businesses in Connecticut & New Hampshire
In most business settings, sprinkler systems are a fundamental firefighting tool. If there is a fire, the water in your sprinklers can become contaminated. To prevent this toxic water from flowing backward and entering the municipal water supply, you might need to install a backflow preventer to remain code-compliant. Not only that, but the NFPA requires backflow preventer testing annually.

Backflow Preventer Installation
“Backflow” is the reverse flow of liquids, gases, or suspended solids in a plumbing system. With the use of check valves, air inlets, and pressure relief valves, a backflow preventer in a fire suppression system prevents pressurized and potentially contaminated water from flowing into the public water supply.
Not all fire sprinkler systems require a backflow preventer. You only need this feature if there isn’t sufficient clearance to install an air gap or if pressurized operation rules out the use of an air gap.
If you’re not sure about your backflow prevention needs, Fire Protection Team can help you sort out the codes and regulations. Then, we can design and install a backflow preventer to meet your needs.
