Backflow Preventer Installation Toronto

What is Backflow Preventer?

A backflow preventer is a device used in plumbing systems to prevent the reverse flow of water or other liquids into the clean water supply. It is designed to ensure that water only flows in one direction, preventing contamination of the water supply with pollutants, chemicals, or other harmful substances. Backflow preventers are typically installed at points in the plumbing system where there is a risk of backflow occurring, such as at cross-connections with irrigation systems, fire sprinkler systems, or in commercial or industrial facilities. There are different types of backflow preventers available, including double check valves, reduced pressure zone (RPZ) valves, and atmospheric vacuum breakers, each suited for different applications and levels of protection.


Why Install a Backflow Preventer?

Benefits of Backflow Preventer Installation Toronto

Backflow preventer testing and installation is required for certain types of properties in Toronto, and other municipalities in Ontario. Except for compliance with regulations, backflow preventer installations and testing  brings several other benefits to the table, including:


  • Protecting the water supply - backflow preventers help prevent the contamination of the municipal water supply with pollutants, chemicals, or harmful substances that could be introduced through backflow. This helps to ensure the safety and quality of the water supply for the community.

  • Compliance with regulations - in Toronto, as in many other municipalities, there are regulations and codes that require the installation of backflow preventers in certain types of buildings or for specific uses, such as commercial or industrial facilities. Installing a backflow preventer ensures compliance with these regulations and helps avoid potential fines or penalties.

  • Safeguarding public health - by preventing backflow and the potential contamination of the water supply, backflow preventers help protect public health by ensuring that the water coming out of taps is safe to drink and use.

  • Liability protection - in the event of a backflow incident that contaminates the water supply, property owners or businesses may be held liable for damages or health risks caused by the contaminated water. Installing a backflow preventer can help protect against potential liability issues.


Overall, installing a backflow preventer in Toronto can provide peace of mind, compliance with regulations, and protection of public health and the environment.

Aqua Rescue came to do a small job that turned into many little jobs without hesitation both Igor and Derek took it on and with a smile. They are very professional and knowledgeable in their trade. I would happily recommend them to anyone who is in need of a local plumber. You will not be dissatisfied.

I’ve worked with several plumbers before but was thoroughly impressed with the way Igor diagnosed and dealt with the issues I was having. After about 5 minutes he was able to identify the problem and handled everything with the utmost attention to detail. He is very knowledgeable and thorough, and made sure I won’t have any problems in the future. 5/5 stars, I’d give more if I could

Usually to book plumbing excavation work it takes several weeks. Aqua rescue came within 3 days brining 2 heave machines for the dig. They excavated our main drain, replaced and backfilled everything within 2 full days. The prices are also pretty good
