There are so many laws that you have to remain in compliance with as a business owner. No matter what type of business you have, there are laws governing all aspects of your work. This includes your plumbing! That’s right…there are laws pertaining to your plumbing that you must follow or face a fine.
If you don’t know about these laws, don’t worry! At Apollo Drain, we can help you make sure that you are in compliance with the backflow prevention laws in your area.
What is Backflow?
Backflow occurs when water flows backward down your pipes and re-enters that main water supply. When this occurs, the water can carry all kinds of contaminants with it. Contaminants can be physical, chemical, biological, or radiological.
Water contamination can cause all sorts of problems, from poisoning to illness and more. If your business is caught contaminating the water, you can be held liable for all sorts of damages on top of the fines you’ll pay to the government. Backflow is definitely a problem you want to avoid if at all possible.
What Laws Do I Need to Know About?
In Washington and Oregon, businesses are required to have backflow prevention assemblies in place and to have them tested once a year. If you do not have both the device and the testing, you may face fines and other consequences.

Fantastic customer service. We were out of town when tenants needed help with a plumbing issue. They let us know who was being dispatched to our house then followed up with a very detailed message post work. I would definitely use these guys again.
I can’t say enough good things about this company. Had a sewer repair needed and had a very short amount of time due to closing on a house sale. Every single person I encountered from Marquita doing logistics for my job to every member of the work crew. Friendly, communicated well, totally responsive and really cared to help me through this very stressful job. All of the people I encountered were role models for what a well run service business should be. Much thanks and appreciation. You’re great.
We had a leak and no hot water. Apollo came out same day and not only fixed the problem but made it better and gave us some good advice on our system. Very reasonable and great communication. Would definitely recommend.
Don is always so helpful and knowledgeable. I really appreciate all the crew members on the Apollo team. I'm a Property Manager so typically I will have several projects for Apollo to address during a single visit. They are easy to interact with and EXCELLENT plumbers. I highly recommend Apollo.
Scott, I would like to personally thank you for expediting our plumbing crisis we recently had. If the situation was not resolved immediately we would have had to close for a couple of days. This occured on a Friday for for us a pizza restaurant this would of been devastating. Thank you so much.

It's my absolute pleasure to recommend Karen Johnson at Apollo Plumbing Service. I have had the pleasure of taking a class taught by Karen. Her knowledge and expertise is a huge advantage to my entire office. I know if I am in a pinch I can call the office and talk to someone! Their customer service is truly amazing, and I have had compliments from customers in the past.

We are a Wendy's Restaurant franchisee in Vancouver, Washington and I want to personally thank Scott and his crew at Apollo for invaluable and excellent service to our restaurants over the last several years. We have used Scott's company after failing miserably with Apollo's many competitors. We tried every one before discovering the extraordinary service we enjoy from Scott and his techs.
