Irrigation Backflow Inspections Explained

Irrigation Backflow Inspection

Irrigation systems utilize backflow preventer assemblies to prevent the contamination of the municipal drinkable water supply from irrigation water. Our inspections align with the guidelines set by the Irrigation Association and local plumbing codes, and follow a thorough process:


1. Visual Irrigation Backflow Inspection: 

Our technicians carefully examine the irrigation backflow preventer assembly, including check valves, relief valves, shutoff valves, test cocks, and pressure gauges. They check for any signs of damage, leaks, or improper installation that may compromise the assembly’s performance.


2. Functional Testing: 

The assembly undergoes functional testing to verify its effectiveness in preventing backflow. This includes conducting a differential pressure test to assess the check valves’ integrity and evaluating pressure settings. Test cocks are also inspected for proper functionality.


3. Compliance Verification: 

We ensure the irrigation backflow preventer assembly complies with local plumbing codes and regulations. Our technicians confirm that the assembly is correctly installed, adequately protected, and properly labeled.


4. Documentation: 

We provide detailed documentation of the inspection findings, including any deficiencies or recommended repairs. This documentation is essential to comply with regulatory requirements and maintain a comprehensive inspection history.
