Backflow Prevention in Las Vegas
Choose Pentagon Plumbing, Inc. to Keep Your Plumbing Safe with Testing & Certification
Every commercial building and some residential buildings are all required to have a backflow prevention device installed. Backflow prevention devices are designed to only allow water in your plumbing system to flow one direction, into your building, thus keeping any water that may become contaminated in your plumbing lines from further contaminating the public water supply.
These prevention devices are required by law to be tested and certified by a licensed backflow certification plumber once a year in order to ensure that they will work properly in the event of an emergency. Finding a qualified inspector who can complete this certification check for you is simple: pick up the phone and call the team at Pentagon Plumbing, Inc. for backflow testing and certification in Las Vegas.

What Is a Backflow Device?
Backflow devices are plumbing mechanisms that are designed to close off and prevent a sudden change in pressure from allowing water to flow backward. When water flows backward, any contamination from equipment, fixtures, or other sources located within a building’s plumbing system could then flow back into the public water supply and have a devastating effect on public health and sanitation. Backflow prevention devices are designed to either completely separate incoming water from water within a commercial plumbing system, or to mechanically prevent water from flowing backward, usually through a reaction to a sudden change in pressure.
We service all types of backflow prevention devices in Las Vegas:
- Pressure vacuum breakers
- Double-check valves
- Reduced pressure zone assemblies
- Atmospheric vacuum breaker assemblies
How to Know What Type of Backflow Prevention Device is Best For You?
The type of backflow prevention device you have will vary based on the size and type of building you have as well as what kind of equipment you use in your building. Heavy water users may have a larger backflow prevention device while smaller commercial spaces or multi-family residential buildings may have smaller devices.
Whatever you may rely on, we offer inspection and certification systems for them all. We can also help with upgrading and modifying your backflow prevention device in order to keep your water safe and your building compliant with plumbing codes and regulations.
How Often Do You Need to Have Your Backflow Prevention Device Tested & Certified?
Backflow prevention devices are important because they stop dirty water from getting into our clean drinking water. To make sure they’re working correctly, it’s important to have them checked by a professional every so often. In Las Vegas, most properties need to have their backflow prevention devices checked and certified once a year, but some properties need to have them checked more often. This depends on things like the type of device, how much of a risk the property poses to the water supply, and the rules in Las Vegas. You can ask a professional or check with your local water authority to find out how often your property needs to be checked.
