Boise, Nampa and Caldwell's Leading Experts in Backflow Prevention Devices

Do you have yard sprinklers?  If you answered yes to that question then you should have a Boise backflow preventer.  If you don't have a backflow preventer in Nampa then you need to get one installed, if you do already have one, it needs to be tested yearly for proper operation.  What a Caldwell backflow preventer does is it prevents back siphon age of potentially contaminated water out of your drinking water.  If there is ever a major drop in the city water and you have your sprinklers running there is potential for there to be a back siphon age, that back siphon age can cause water from your yard where there are chemical fertilizers, animal feces ect. that can be then siphoned back into your drinking water.  There has been proven cases of this happening and caused people to get sick or even die.  If you are a candidate for a backflow preventer or have an existing one Drake Mechanical has you covered.  We have certified technicians that have been trained to test and repair or replace the devices and make sure that they are in proper working order.  This keeps you and your family safe from potentially dangerous situations.  

Offices And Commercial Buildings

Drake Mechanical regularly installs Boise backflow preventers, maintains Meridian backflow prevention devices and also repairs Boise Backflow preventers in offices and commercial buildings as well as homes.  We are certified to install, test and approve or repair these devices whether it is your home or the building you work in or are in charge of maintenance for. There are many applications other than sprinklers in buildings that require Backflow Protection.  The building itself needs to have a backflow prevention device on it to keep it isolated from contaminating the city water if anything were to happen, if there are boilers or cooling towers, chemicals or equipment that are connected to city water then that individual item will also need to be protected by the proper backflow preventer for the application.  This is all to keep our drinking water safe and clean so we can all enjoy it without having to worry about it.  If you have any questions or concerns please call us today and we can get a technician out to look at your situation and get the proper device installed, tested and repaired or replaced if necessary.
