How Often Should I Get a Full Plumbing Inspection?

The answer here can vary depending on the nature of the property and of your business. A simple answer:

  • Before Signing the Lease to a Commercial Property.
  • Immediately After a Major Disaster.
  • At Least Once a Year.


Backflow Preventers

Backflow devices prevents pollution or contamination between known supply of drinking water and an appliance. Businesses are responsible for compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act, to ensure that customers are not receiving compromised or contaminated water.

The backflow device(s) are tested on an annual basis, unless the water purveyors require the RP or RPZ to be tested semi-annually. The inspection of the backflow device is not required as part of the sprinkler inspection.


Kitchen Hood Systems

Kitchen Hood Suppression Systems are integral for controlling fires in one of the most at-risk locations in a facility. Semi-annual service is paramount to ensuring all cooking equipment is adequately covered and that the system will operate in the event of a fire - and also required by code.
