What is a Backflow Preventer?
A backflow preventer is a device installed on your water service to let water flow in and stop contaminants from flowing back out to the city’s water supply. If your property houses potential health hazards, you need a backflow preventer on every water service by law. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) mandates the installations be designed by a professional engineer, installed by a NYC-licensed master plumber, and tested by a state-certified technician. Ashokan is your one stop shop for backflow installation -we design, install, test, and repair any device at any property in the five boroughs.
