Professional Backflow Testing

When it comes to ensuring the safety of your drinking water it is vital to have your backflow prevention device inspected annually. For anyone who has a sprinkler system installed, making sure your backflow device is working properly will prevent contaminated water from your lawn from mixing with your drinking water from your taps. This is not only recommended, but also required by state policies throughout Colorado.

Sprinkler Backflow Testing in Durango

Backflow devices help to ensure the pesticides, fertilizers, and other runoff materials in your lawn, garden, or landscaping, are not intermixed with your drinking water. Backflow prevention devices are installed on cross-connections in plumbing systems. These devices help to redirect the contaminated water away from a home or building’s plumbing system, preventing cross-contamination between the two.

Even properly installed backflow devices will need to be tested annually to ensure proper functioning. Riverview Landscaping is a qualified and experienced backflow inspector in the Durango.
