Columbia, United States - December 6, 2019 /PressCable/ —
Plumb Time Plumbing and Drain Services, a South Carolina-based residential and commercial licensed/insured master plumbing services company, is extending its offerings to include backflow prevention and testing, with representatives of the business stressing to customers the importance of avoiding cross-contamination in a water supply.
“When it comes to plumbing repairs or issues considered underrated, unknown or otherwise unattended to, the potential catastrophe of backflow must be at the top of the list for everyone – whether on a residential or commercial level,” says Plumb Time owner Manny Anderson. “Put simply, backflow is water flowing in the reverse direction in an unwanted manner, and while many home or business owners don’t think this is a big deal, it could become very serious should that backflow be caused by a contaminated source, ultimately threatening the health of those using the water supply.
“In extending our service offerings, we are now including backflow tests so customers can know if their own water supply has backflow preventers in place to protect them.”

According to Plumb Time representatives, sources that could exhibit the potential for cross-contaminating the water supply include garbage disposals, dishwashers, faucets with connected hoses, hose bibs, toilets, handheld shower heads, whirlpool baths, irrigation systems, fish ponds and swimming pools – just to name a few.
Further, Plumb Time reps often inform customers that if they are connected to a city or other type of municipal water supply, they will surely have backflow preventers in place to protect the supply up to the point where it enters a home or business; this is where it becomes the home or business owner’s responsibility to annually test for and prevent backflow issues within the structure. In fact, say Plumb Time staff, this is not an optional test in many places in South Carolina – including the capital city, where it’s required that a home or business have a backflow test conducted once a year.
Once the test has been completed, the plumber is required to fill out a Field Test Report and submit it to the city, with the individual home or business owner responsible for the cost of the testing – a common misconception amongst residents and commercial entities – as well as for ensuring the test is completed annually.
“The bottom line is that our customers’ health and safety – as well as the health and safety of their families and pets – is a top priority for us, and as such we work with them in setting up the best time to complete a backflow test, wholly dependent on their schedules,” adds Anderson.
In addition to backflow preventing and testing, Plumb Time offers services in the areas of water lines, sewer connections/lines, water heaters, leak detection/repair, slab leaks, fixture installation/repair, sinks and faucets, toilets (any style), bathtubs and showers, custom showers and shower walls, drain cleaning, sewer line repair/hydro-jetting, garbage disposals, boilers, full or partial re-piping (copper/PEX), laundry piping relocation, re-routing of lines, septic tanks, gas line installation/repair, gas leaks and inspection, video sewer camera inspection, sprinkler systems, irrigation systems, wells and pumps, kitchen and bathroom remodeling and new construction/rough-ins.
