Backflow Preventer Repair

In addition to being licensed irrigation designers and contractors, Taylor Irrigation Service is also a licensed backflow inspector with the state of Texas and the City of Houston.

If you are like most homeowners, you don’t know what the backflow device is, let alone what it does. Taylor Irrigation is here to help. The backflow is the most important component of your irrigation system because it protects you and your family from harmful chemicals that can be present on your lawn. When a sprinkler system is finished watering and the heads are lowered back into the ground a vacuum is created. This means that whatever is on your lawn is now inside of your irrigation pipes including pesticides, fertilizers, fungicides and animal droppings. The backflow device (there are a number of different kinds and a variety of manufacturers) protects your family’s tap water from these harmful contaminants.

A backflow is required on all irrigation systems within the state of Texas. A backflow must be installed up to code and because of the many irrigation contractors operating without a license, many of these devices are not and often times they are not installed at all. Code dictates what type of device is installed and how it is installed. Once a backflow device is installed it has to be inspected. If the device is repaired or relocated at any point it must be inspected again. Commercial properties must then have the backflow inspected annually thereafter though we highly recommend that home owners have their backflow devices inspected annually as well because this device is there to protect your health. Taylor Irrigation Service is trained, certified and licensed to install, repair, relocate and inspect your backflow device.

Backflow devices are the part of the system that routinely freezes and breaks if not properly protected during the winter. Learning how to care for these devices and how to winterize them is very important or you could be ensuring that yours breaks and they are certainly not cheap to repair. Taylor Irrigation Service offers winterization services individually as well as part of our irrigation maintenance packages.

Backflow inspection is a completely different license than the common landscape irrigation license. When dealing with a backflow, whether it is installation, repair or inspection, it is recommended that you seek the services of a licensed backflow inspector rather than an irrigation contractor.

Taylor Irrigation Service is here to meet all of your irrigation needs and as a certified, licensed and insured backflow inspector we can meet all of your backflow needs so that you and your family are protected from the possibility of backflow contamination. Call us today for your consultation or backflow inspection.
