Do you have a sprinkler system? Make sure it has a backflow preventer and it is tested annually.
Backflow prevention devices protect public health and safety by keeping dangerous contaminants out of the public water system – and out of your own home.
- Are required annually by law in San Antonio and most municipalities.
- Apply to all residences with in-ground sprinkler systems and many types of commercial businesses.
- Must be done by a licensed tester that is selected, contracted and paid by the owner of the home or business.
