Alvarez Backflow Co. Named Winner of Small Business Sweepstakes

The Chargers have selected Alvarez Backflow Company as its winner of the Bolt Up Your Small Business sweepstakes, launched in response to COVID-19. Alvarez Backflow Company is a family and veteran-owned backflow testing, repair, and installation company based in Orange and Kern County.

"We felt that it was important for us to continue supporting our community that has been so hard-hit by COVID-19," said Chargers chief marketing officer Steven Ziff. "Small businesses are the lifeblood of Southern California and we felt that this was a very unique way for us to give back to at least one of them and help promote their business across the region. Ultimately, we're a family-run organization and want to support all of Los Angeles and the surrounding region as part of our Bolt Fam!"
"This is an amazing opportunity for any small business owner, especially because of these uncertain times when a lot of small businesses are being forced to close their doors and let their employees go," said Wendy Ramos of Alvarez Backflow Co. "So for a franchise as big as the Chargers to find a creative way to support small business owners speaks volumes for what they do and stand for as far as supporting their communities. On top of that, to take a chance on such a (unique) industry as ours is very challenging, but we know they are up for the challenge and really appreciate them offering this amazing opportunity to put out business out there."
Backflow is the undesirable reversal of flow of a liquid, gas, or suspended solid into the potable water supply. A backflow prevention device is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow.
Stage 1: Your home or business has a connection to the public water system not protected by a backflow device.

Stage 2: Water pressure is reduced because of a break in the water main or a fire event using a lot of water suddenly.
Stage 3: The sudden drop in water pressure creates a reverse pressure situation.
Stage 4: Dangerous contaminants from the unprotected connection can now potentially enter the water drinking supply.
