I never had my Backflow Device tested before, why now?
When your backflow preventer was installed it was tested prior to plumbing inspection, but because of the large number of existing backflow preventers in various cities it is not easy for municipalities to keep you informed of when your backflow preventer is due to be tested. However, due to increased awareness of the importance of protecting our potable water, many cities are taking better steps to enforce all backflow devices to be tested and certified twice per year.
Who is responsible for the testing?
Legally, the purveyor of the water supply is responsible for the cleanliness and potability of the water supply, and for implementing and maintaining a cross-connection control program. However, from the outlet of the water meter or service connection including all piping downstream to the furthest extent of the piping system inside the owner’s premises, is the property owner’s responsibility.
