Backflow Testing and Backflow Installation Services
A backflow prevention assembly is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution.
In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower etc. When pressure fails or is reduced, as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, then such reduced pressure in the pipe may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn up into the system.
The presence of backflow and backsiphonage may result in unsafe conditions. State law has mandated commercial facilities, and residential dwellings with irrigation systems to utilize backflow assemblies as a means to prevent contamination to the potable water source. In addition, these backflow assemblies are to be tested annually, and documentation shall be submitted to the authority having jurisdiction. Austen Plumbing Company personnel are certified, and licensed through the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality.

It is essential that an approved backflow device be installed in your home or office to avoid cross contamination from irrigation systems, or appliances that may be connected to your water supply.
A backflow preventer is a means or mechanism to prevent backflow. The basic means of preventing backflow is an air gap, which either eliminates a cross-connection or provides a barrier to backflow. The basic mechanism for preventing backflow is a mechanical backflow preventer, which provides a physical barrier to backflow. The principal types of mechanical backflow preventer are the reduced-pressure principle assembly, the pressure vacuum breaker assembly, and the double check valve assembly. A secondary type of mechanical backflow preventer is the residential dual check valve.
