Vacuum Breaker Test

Twin Cities Vacuum Breaker Test

Schedule your vacuum breaker test - it's the law!

Starting January 2016, if you have an irrigation system, the Minnesota plumbing code requires that your Pressure Vacuum Breaker be tested. This law requires that all testable backflow prevention assemblies be tested, maintained and removed in accordance with section 603.5.23 of the plumbing code.


That’s bad news.

The Good News?

Conserva Irrigation’s licensed professional irrigation professionals will come and test your vacuum breaker. Call (763) 401-7313.

In accordance with the new law, a test and inspection tag shall be affixed to the testable backflow prevention assembly. The tester will need to date and sign the tag and include the tester’s backflow prevention tester certification number.

What to Expect At Your Backflow Testing Appointment

1. Arrive on Time

A Conserva Licensed and Certified Backflow Tester will arrive at your house when scheduled and will introduce themselves to you. If this is their first time at your property they may need to be directed to the location of the backflow device.

2. Device Testing & Grading

The technician will test the backflow device for efficacy and make note of the results on the required backflow test form.

3. Analysis

If the device passes the test, you will be informed of such and the required paperwork will be filed, if applicable. If the device fails the test, you will be approached with options to remedy the device. If no action is taken, the device will be tagged with a failure notice and shut off.
