Make sure your business is not liable for New York City fines by consulting with the backflow prevention device experts at Maxwell

In an effort to protect the environment as well as the health of New York City residents, the Department of Environmental Protection enforces local law #3-2009. This legislation requires certain properties to install backflow prevention devices. According to the document which states: "The purpose of this Local Law is to safeguard potable water supplies from potential contamination by preventing backflow from a water user’s system into the public water system," all applicable businesses are legally required to have these devices installed.

Take a minute to check whether or not this law applies to your business, or give us a call and we can help you to understand these requirements fully. If you are worried about the status of your water line, installing a backflow preventer, or even just getting your plumbing system tested we are ready to lend a hand!

In Queens, Manhattan and surrounding areas, we are called upon as backflow prevention experts and we know what you need!

The penalties for failure to comply with the Sanity Code legislation range from increasing monetary fines to termination of your water service! If you have received a DEP order to install a backflow device in 30 days or less, don’t panic. We can help you straighten out the legality by performing the necessary installation efficiently and reliably.

For backflow prevention questions or New York City compliance concerns call Maxwell Plumb today and let us help!
