West Virginia Requires Restaurants to Have a Backflow Preventer

Are you new to the restaurant business in West Virginia? If you are, you should know that West Virginia law requires backflow prevention for all restaurants. Many may not realize the necessity of installing a backflow preventer. Rely on Robinson & Son Plumbing & Mechanical to keep your restaurant in compliance. Restaurant owners throughout the region count on us for proper backflow preventer installation, repair, and backflow testing. One common way to prevent backflow is to use an air gap. This separates any possibly contaminated water or bacteria from the potable water.



Rely on a Backflow Preventer to Keep Your Diners Safe

Backflow happens when tainted water, gas, or other contaminants flow in reverse. Flowing in reverse can lead tainted contaminants to enter the water supply of a restaurant. Backflow can occur when there is low pressure in the water tank or plumbing system. Pollutants can lead to sickness for your diners and issues for the environment. Diners becoming sick at restaurants could mean closure. Don’t try to cut corners.



Our Technician Can Provide an Annual Backflow Preventer Inspection

The ideal solution to catching backflow is with routine maintenance inspections and testing. Robinson & Son Plumbing & Mechanical can successfully test and inspect your water supply. Our technicians can check your existing backflow preventer to make certain that the water is clean. To ensure your restaurant’s water safety, our technician can test your backflow preventer annually. We can also test the backflow preventer immediately after repair, relocation, or maintenance.



Setting Up Affordable Quarterly Line Flushing is Ideal

Let’s face it; some things at restaurants make it into drain lines and sewer lines that shouldn’t be there. Grease can create havoc on the water lines of a restaurant. As a service to our commercial customers, we can flush out your lines on a quarterly basis. Robinson & Son Plumbing & Mechanical can set up the service at an affordable rate. We can also install grease traps for your restaurant.
