Backflow Testing Services
Backflow testing is an essential aspect of maintaining a safe and reliable irrigation system. Backflow is the unwanted reversal of water flow in a plumbing system, which can cause contamination and health hazards.
Why Backflow Testing is Important!
In an irrigation system, backflow can occur when the pressure inside the system drops, and water from the surrounding environment, which may contain harmful chemicals or bacteria, flows back into the system. This is particularly concerning when the irrigation system is connected to a potable water supply, as it can result in the contamination of the drinking water.
To prevent this from happening, it is crucial to have a backflow preventer installed in your irrigation system. This device ensures that water flows only in one direction, preventing any contamination from the environment.
However, even with a backflow preventer installed, regular testing is still necessary to ensure that the device is working correctly. Over time, backflow preventers can wear down or become damaged, compromising their effectiveness. A professional backflow test can detect any issues and provide a solution before contamination occurs.
In many areas, including most cities and states, backflow testing is required by law. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines or other penalties. At Southern Select Sprinkler, we are knowledgeable about these regulations and can help ensure that your irrigation system is up to code.
In addition to being a legal requirement, backflow testing is also a matter of safety. Protecting the health of your family, customers, and employees should always be a top priority. Regular backflow testing can prevent potential contamination issues and give you peace of mind that your irrigation system is functioning correctly.

What if your system doesn't have a backflow preventer?
As a responsible property owner, it is important to ensure that your sprinkler system has a properly installed backflow preventer. While it has been a requirement for some time, not all systems have one installed, especially older systems or those installed by handymen or DIY enthusiasts. To qualify as appropriate, a backflow preventer must be testable. In some cases, a high-hazard backflow preventer such as a reduced pressure backflow preventer (RP or RPZ) may be necessary.
At Southern Select Sprinkler, we understand the importance of having a properly installed and maintained backflow preventer. Our team is certified and licensed to test, repair, and install any type of backflow preventer, ensuring that your system is up to code and protecting your property and community from potential hazards.
