After the initial inspection, as required by law, once a year all boilers including low and high pressure, in all commercial buildings, mixed use buildings, and dwellings with six or more families, must be inspected annually by building owners for operational safety and to ensure compliance with the NYC Building Code and other regulations.

Backflow Preventer Inspection

Backflow Testing in New York

New York City law requires that all backflow systems on certain properties receive testing from a certified tester once a year. If it is time for your property to receive testing on its backflow prevention device, please call us to make an appointment at (718) 888 -1855.

Information about backflow testing

Since back-flow prevention devices are mechanical devices, they have the potential to fail. In order to ensure that the public water supply stays free of harmful chemicals and contaminants, certain properties are required to have back-flow prevention devices installed in their water systems.

These devices must properly function in order for them to fulfill their purpose. Therefore, New York’s law also requires that the devices be inspected on a yearly basis and tested for any possible failures that may threaten public health. For more information on back-flow inspection, call us today at (718) 888-1855.
