  • Why They Matter

JBS Plumbing Services offers backflow testing and repairs to keep you, your team, and your business safe.

Backflow occurs when toxins from one part of the water system flow into the freshwater supply line. It is a serious public health issue that can introduce bacteria and other hazards into the drinking water.

A backflow preventer helps to prevent this problem. However, if something goes wrong with this device, your business, team, clients, or customers could be in big trouble.

The JBS team understands the importance of a properly functioning backflow preventer. We’re also familiar with the city of Houston’s specific testing and maintenance requirements and are licensed to administer these tests.


If you’re looking for a commercial plumbing in Houston, Austin, or San Antonio areas that offer compliant, efficient, and effective testing or repair services, we’re here for you.

Our Backflow Testing and Repair Process

How do you know if your backflow device isn’t working correctly? You’ll likely experience some or all of these issues:

Decreased water pressure

Strange-tasting or smelling water

Water appearing dirty or discolored

If you notice any of these signs, contact JBS Plumbing Services immediately. When we arrive on the scene, we’ll examine the valves of your backflow preventer carefully and look for the following:

Check valves are not preventing backflow correctly

Air ports are not opening when they should

Relief valves are not opening at the appropriate time

If we notice these or any other problems with your backflow preventer, we will get to work right away to address the issue and repair or replace your device as quickly as possible.
