Certified Backflow Testing Requirements
It is a requirement in Los Angeles County to have a certified backflow tester perform a backflow prevention test on your backflow device once a year for all commercial properties and some residential properties. If you are not sure if your property is required by law to have a backflow test performed annually you can contact your city water authority and they will be able to inform you if it is a requirement for your property.
When you hire a backflow company to perform backflow testing on your backflow device, you will no longer have to worry about being up to date with the city regulations. The majority of backflow companies keep an extensive database of all their clients, allowing them to notify their clients and schedule appointments before the deadline meets. It is extremely important to have your backflow device checked and certified, failure to do this can result in major fines.
