Does my backflow prevention device need to be tested?
Yes, to ensure the device is functioning properly, the City of Fayetteville requires annual testing. Backflow preventers are mechanical units that have internal seals, springs, and moving parts that are subject to wear and fatigue. The annual test ensures a properly functioning device and certifies that the unit has not been removed or by-passed.
