Backflow Services in Portland, Oregon
Backflow Testing and Repairs in Portland Metro and the Surrounding Areas
Backflow valves and prevention systems are an important part of any plumbing system. Backflow systems make sure that your plumbing is a one-way street – that clean water goes to your fixtures, wastewater is carried away from your drains, and the two streams never cross paths. These systems are especially important for commercial and industrial properties and are in fact required by law to be properly installed and maintained. Caliber Services is ready to help our local Portland businesses keep their backflow systems in working order and keep their water supplies clean and clear.
For help maintaining your commercial or industrial backflow prevention system, call Caliber Services in Portland at (503) 836-8579 today!
How Often Should Backflow Prevention Systems Be Tested?
The vast majority of experts recommend, as well as local Municipalities and Purveyors require backflow prevention devices be tested annually. This testing must be done by a licensed, certified professional in order to ensure your system is properly evaluated and tested. This service will identify any issues and we will provide options for resolution promptly. Additional tests can and should be performed should you notice irregular leakage, or suspect your backflow is damaged or degraded.
Every Municipality has backflow requirements for commercial and industrial properties. We can help you stay in compliance and prevent fines, failures, and water shutoff by the water company. Most properties come with built-in backflow systems, but it is up to the property owner to keep that system maintained and repaired. Having a trusted professional on-call to handle backflow issues ensures that your property is always code-compliant and that messy backflow issues never put your operation at risk.

How to Tell if Something's Wrong with Your Backflow Prevention System
Even with regular testing and maintenance, it’s still possible for your backflow prevention system to break without your knowledge. A broken backflow system can lead to toxic substances entering your water supply. It’s important to recognize the early warning signs of a broken backflow system so that you can receive the necessary repairs before your property is seriously contaminated.
Signs of a Malfunctioning Backflow System Include:
- Your water is tinted brown, pink, or another strange color
- Your water smells of sulfur
- The flow of water from fixtures is slow or inconsistent
- Rust or sediment particles are clearly visible in your water
- Your water tastes off or bad
- Slow drains or frequent clogs
