Over the past couple of years there have been a few brass backflow preventers stolen from customer owner water service lines. The backflow preventer is an important safety measure to help keep our drinking water safe. When stolen this equipment can be expensive to replace and cause a big inconvenience as the water must be turned off until the replacement is completed.
One method to deter theft is to paint your backflow preventer. This will make the assembly less desirable to the scrap metal business. This is an inexpensive step that may help keep your property safe. There are more expensive methods like installing a cage with a lock. If you would like more information please contact the Backflow Group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
