Pretty much all business and manufacturing business owners are aware of installation and testing of backflow prevention devices. They know that they have to have it examined yearly. But what about homeowners with backflow preventers installed such as you? Are you aware that the law requires backflow testing in Gladstone? If not, then allow me to try to explain to you why.
Homeowners with backflow preventers think that their obligations stop with installation. They commit to once a year backflow testing basically due to these reasons:
- They feel like backflow testing has already been covered in their water bill; and,
- They just do not completely have an understanding of the health risks of not getting backflow testing.
Water suppliers are not required by law to perform backflow testing or repair. Testing is conducted by State certified contractor. Certification is awarded only after a training course and a written and practical test. A re-testing is suggested to maintain this certification. There’s additionally the need to buy backflow testing equipment. No surprise that backflow testing costs quite a bit. Then again, the price is unequaled to the well-being of your loved ones and your local community.
Backflows just cannot be avoided and your local government knows that. For this reason exactly they have required the installation of backflow prevention devices by a licensed Gladstone plumber. This is also the main reason why the city calls for backflow testing in Gladstone. These regulations are in place to protect you and the rest of its people from the consequences of potential contamination of the city’s potable water supply.
