NOT all contractors have these licenses, forcing their customers to call a second company to fulfill Mesa and Scottsdale’s requirements. Call us first we can handle it all.

A backflow is a valve on your water line that makes sure any water that comes into your building won?t go back out into the public water system. They are most commonly found on your domestic (drinking) water line, your irrigation and your fire sprinkler line. A building could have one or many. They are also commonly found in dental offices, on X-ray machines and soda fountains.
