Backflow Preventer Testing & Repair
Safeguard your water supply with backflow prevention.
Drinkable Water Safety
NIFCO’s NICET Certified inspectors will make sure your backflow prevention device is used to protect water supplies from contamination or pollution. Annual inspections will help prevent costly problems that could occur. Without timely inspections, devices may fall victim to pressure failure which can corrupt the water supply. For optimal safety, it is highly recommended your system undergoes annual testing and inspection. The costs of a backflow incident – in litigation and damages, lost productivity, company reputation, premiums and more – can be devastating.
Annual testing of backflow preventers is required by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Title 179. NIFCO’S team of registered Grade 6 water operators can test all backflow preventers including both fire and domestic devices. Testing all devices during the same visit can help save the customer time and money. Our licensed staff can also repair or replace failed or defective devices.
When drinking water piping connects to various plumbing fixtures or water utilizing equipment, a cross-connection is created. If improperly protected, contamination can result.
Backflow failure can be damaging to your facility and dangerous to the health of the occupants. Backflow can occur when draining down a building to make a plumbing repair, a broken water main, fire fighters using large quantities of water, or pressure buildup within water using equipment or process. The costs of a backflow incident – in litigation and damages, lost productivity, company reputation, premiums and more – can be devastating.
For more than 10 years, we have relied on Nifco Mechanical Systems to design and install fire sprinkler system expansions and modifications at our facility. We have always found the Nifco team to be responsive to our schedule, and quite knowledgeable about what is required for a project design to comply with state and national codes. The company stands behind its workmanship, following up after projects are completed to be sure we are fully satisfied.
The best thing about Nifco is every time I call, I get a quick and helpful answer. Their team is always there when you need them and they do a great job.
NIFCO is an honest mechanical contractor who has the clients best interest in mind from start to finish. Their employees are some of the hardest working and intelligent installers I have had the pleasure of working with.

It’s been a joy to work with Nifco- I’ve considered them a design partner from the outset. Today’s buildings are more complicated and complex than ever requiring new approaches to arrive at cost effective solutions, and in that Nifco excels. My relationship with Nifco Mechanical is just as vibrant and alive and fun as the day I started 39 years ago.
