Backflow Prevention Testing is a Health Issue
Testing for backflow prevention annually is important to protect the personal health of your family and community. A defective backflow assembly can turn deadly when back-siphoning contaminants enter the water system you drink from. Lawn and irrigation contaminants can include animal feces, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, or any contaminants sucked in near a sprinkler head or broken pipe. Preventing contaminants from entering our potable water supply is why municipalities require annual testing.
Able irrigation technicians ensure your sprinkler irrigation system backflow inspections are properly filed according to the regulations of your local municipality. Able Irrigation offers regular lawn sprinkler and irrigation maintenance services including backflow prevention annual testing.
