Backflow Prevention

Adirondack Mechanical Corp. is a New York State-certified backflow prevention repair and installation company.

Backflow is the unwanted reversal of flow of non-potable water or other substances into the piping of a public water system or consumer’s potable water system. Water is typically maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower, or other fixture in your home or other building. But when a water main bursts, pipes freeze, or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, water pressure may fail. That reduced pressure in the pipe can result in contaminated water being drawn up into the system.

A backflow preventer is designed to keep this reversal from happening, and to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow – keeping everything running in the right direction. Our professional plumbers can install effective preventers in washing machines, dishwashers, fire sprinklers and other devices.

We specialize in Watts preventers, but service all brands. With capability as a licensed plumber in New York State, we can install any backflow device you may require. We also offer a yearly testing arrangement and even handle all the paperwork for you.
