A backflow prevention assembly is a mechanical device attached to the drinking water meter to prevent any potentially contaminated water from entering the main water line.
Backflow prevention assemblies are required by the Florida Administrative Code and by local ordinance. These devices are required to protect the public health and safety of the drinking water supply. Testing is important because, like all mechanical devices with moving parts, they are subject to failure. Testing, combined with any needed repair, helps to ensure that the assemblies meet the minimum requirements.
