Are you getting excited about spring? Warmer days mean more time enjoying a lush lawn. To achieve beautiful, green grass, you depend on your irrigation system. But before you turn the water back on, you’ll need to engage a Tennessee state-certified backflow inspector. In Chattanooga, backflow testing is a requirement. The test ensures that contaminants (pesticides and fertilizers) don’t make their way into your drinking water.
Why Is Backflow Testing So Important in Chattanooga?
If there is a drop in pressure in a sprinkler system's water line, a back-siphonage can occur, which causes a reversal in water flow. Such an event can pollute your water supply, which could be very harmful if you drink it.
The solution to this is a backflow device, also called a pressure vacuum breaker (PVB) or a reduced pressure zone valve (RPZ). This device keeps any back-siphonage from entering the water system. These devices can malfunction or suffer from damage during the winter due to freezing, thus the need for annual testing.
The testing is a requirement. The State of Tennessee also requires you to send paperwork to your water company to confirm the testing.
