Each year, after we have had several days of freezing weather, it is important to have your irrigation system and backflow preventer inspected and tested prior to the summer months. Inspections and repairs now can save you the possibility of spending hundreds of dollars and wasting valuable water due to broken or cracked pipes. A backflow preventer that is tested and repaired now could prevent a future replacement of the entire valve. During the heat of the upcoming summer months, your irrigation system inspection can prevent your plants from drying out or possible dying. Remember, your backflow preventer is not just a part of your landscape system, it is a required device that prevents contaminants from being siphoned into your drinking water.
