Your water’s purity is key to your family’s health. From cleaning your dishes to bathing to cooking to drinking, your peace of mind relies on keeping your water from being contaminated through backflow. For that, you’ll need certified backflow testers to test your backflow prevention devices and provide repairs or installation if your device is defective.
Because local agencies are responsible for preventing backflow on a county-wide basis, homeowners and property managers are required to test their backflow prevention devices on an annual basis. If your backflow test deadline is coming up, call Nautilus Plumbing today for a backflow test. Our Los Feliz and Glendale backflow prevention experts have the tools and knowledge to keep your water clean year after year.

What Causes Backflow?
Typically, pressure differential keeps clean water flowing from the local water agency to your home, and then wastewater from your home to your local sewage system. But when pressure increases at the receiving end of the system (back siphonage) or decreases at the source (back pressure), it can cause the water to reverse direction. Your wastewater can enter the general water supply, or your wastewater can flow back into your home.
Water flow can reverse by:
- Boilers, sprinklers, or power washing tools
- A broken water main
- Firefighting siphoning off a large quantity of water
