Did you know that Back Flow Testing of your irrigation system is required annually in Bend Oregon and surrounding areas.
To ensure the highest quality of water , water suppliers require their customers to have their irrigation systems checked annually to to help ensure that backflow doesn’t occur on your property.
Sprinkler systems of course are the main focus of most residential backflow prevention programs. The reason of course is that water in irrigation pipes can become contaminated with garden chemicals and microorganisms.
This is why landscape irrigation systems always require installation of backflow prevention devices. And of course with all things mechanical they can fail.
Most backflow devices have internal seals, springs, and moving parts that are subject to fouling, wear, or fatigue. These devices have to be tested annually by a certified tester Like Miller Irrigation to ensure they are functioning properly.
