A backflow assembly prevents the reversal of flow due to backpressure and backsiphonage. Backflow assemblies are required to be tested after being installed, after repairs and annually.
A sprinkler system is subsurface and can draw in pollutants/contaminates such as fertilizers and animal wastes through the sprinkler heads. Without a backflow preventer and during a backpressure or backsiphonage situation these pollutants/contaminants could be drawn back into the drinking water.
Backflow assemblies just like anything else can fail over time. This is one of the reasons for the annual testing by a certified Backflow Assembly Tester. We have two certified Backflow Assembly Testers.
$55.00 for each test (Additional charge for backflow assemblies in crawl space and some areas may be higher cost)
We send a copy of the test report to the water district or their designated company for compliance (A backflow test submittal fee could be added depending on water district filing requirements)
We send a copy of the test report to the property owner for their records
Backflow Assembly repairs are charged at $75.00 per hour plus parts.
