ARE YOU SURE YOUR DRINKING WATER IS SAFE
WHY ANNUAL TESTING IS IMPORTANT
Backflow testing is part of the annual maintenance required for each and every professionally installed irrigation system. It ensures the device is properly protecting your water supply from potential backflow.
We take back flow prevention very seriously as it can have costly even sometimes fatal consequences. We do not mess around when it comes to the safety of your drinking water because it's our drinking water too.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T TEST MY SYSTEM
FAILURE TO TEST YOUR DEVICE
If your underground sprinkler system has a double check valve assembly it has to be tested annually as required by the city of Calgary bylaws. Failure to test the device is punishable as per bylaw. Avoid this costly fine and call today.
