IFP Installs Backflow Preventer at Major GA Institution

Backflow Blog pic 2Last week, Integrated Fire Protection had the opportunity to install a backflow preventer for a major institution in Georgia. This important project went seamlessly and took less time than anyone expected. “During the client’s sprinkler inspection this year, our team was told that their domestic water was coming out dirty every now and then. The facility had brought several different companies out to look at the problem, but no one could identify the issue. After our inspection and investigation, we knew immediately that their tank needed a backflow preventer to keep contaminated water out of their domestic water supply,” stated IFP Sprinkler Inspection Supervisor, Chad Ezelle. “When we explained our findings to the client, they understood the severity of the situation and wanted it fixed immediately. We took measurements and developed an extensive material list and game plan for the new Backflow Blog pic 3installation. Once the custom fabricated backflow prevention device was manufactured, our team coordinated everything including the heavy machinery and other logistical matters, completing the installation in just three days.”

The meticulous and efficient work completed by Integrated Fire Protection’s Fire Sprinkler Division is attributed to the leadership of our Division Manager, Gene Balog, who has over 40 years of experience in the Fire Sprinkler Industry, as well as two of our Fire Sprinkler Superintendents, Chad Ezelle and Jason Johnson, who were onsite for the entire job. Jason said “We’re thrilled that we were able to complete the backflow installation seamlessly and without the facility losing any water pressure. They can rest easy now, knowing that their water is safe and clean from any contaminants.”
