Why is a Backflow Preventer Important?
The backflow preventer, as its name indicates, prevents contaminants from back flowing into the City’s water system and being distributed to you and your neighbors. The types of contaminants from a residential or commercial property that could get into the irrigation piping would include such things as animal fecal matter, fertilizer, insecticides, mosquito larvae or anything else that gets deposited onto the lawn. In addition to protecting the drinking water supply, backflow prevention devices are required by law in San Antonio and the metro area. Each city has its own requirement for installation and testing, and All American Irrigation can help make sure you are in compliance
Need a Backflow Preventer Installed?
A lot of older sprinkler systems installation done by home owner or the fly-by-night contractor may not have the proper backflow preventer installed. If you need to install a backflow preventer, it is necessary to obtain a plumbing permit and follow all city code requirements. If you haven’t done so already, call your city for permit information. To ensure proper installation that will pass city inspection, it is recommended that you hire a contractor to install the proper backflow preventer.
Whether you need a backflow preventer installed, serviced or tested, you can trust the certified, licensed technicians at All American Irrigation Systems to make sure it’s done right the first time.
