WHY TEST FOR BACKFLOW?

Anytime there is an irrigation system on a property or potential for contamination between potable (drinking) and non-potable (irrigation) water, a backflow assembly is required and must be tested by a certified, trained technician.

Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) and most other city/county electric utility authorities require annual backflow testing for both residential and commercial properties. Our team of certified technicians have been testing backflow assemblies in Alachua County since the regulation was enacted. We also test devices in the surrounding areas outside of Alachua County.

 

Our signature backflow prevention program includes these services:

Backflow Preventer Installation • Backflow Preventer Repair • Backflow Preventer Freeze Protection • Compliance Reporting

 

WHAT IS BACKFLOW?

Backflow is the undesirable reversal of the flow of water from its intended direction in any pipeline or plumbing system. This is dangerous because it can allow drinking water in residential and commercial plumbing systems to become contaminated and unusable.

Backflow testing requires a brief period where the water is turned off. If you have a commercial property or other reasons not to turn off your water during normal business hours arrangements can be made for early morning or weekends.

 

RESIDENTIAL BACKFLOW TESTING

Florida residences must test their backflow assembly every 2 years.
An average test takes 15 to 30 minutes.

COMMERCIAL BACKFLOW TESTING

Florida business must test their backflow assembly once a year.
An average test takes 15 to 30 minutes.

IDENTIFY THE POTENTIAL FOR BACKFLOW

Understand how your backflow assembly works and what can casuse this to happen in your home.

 

HOW DOES A BACKFLOW ASSEMBLY WORK?

A backflow assembly is important because the majority of residential irrigation systems share that same water source as the water our drinking water. This system creates an airlock that will not allow water to back siphon into potable or drinking water.

WHAT ARE COMMON CAUSES OF BACKFLOW?

Broken main lines and the use of water hydrants are two main causes of backflow. They create suction on your property’s water supply. Without backflow prevention, contaminated water from your irrigation system can be drawn back into your potable water system.
