WHAT WE DO

RDL Backflow Testers will perform the annual inspection of your backflow prevention device installed on your underground irrigation system or within your plumbing system. Your water department’s backflow prevention program requires this test. A qualified tester must complete a successful test of the device(s) and the results sent to your local water department each year. Failure to comply with this required yearly inspection could result in termination of your water service.

NOTE
If your backflow is on the outside of your home, you do not have to be home for us to perform the test. Please note that the valve that supplies the water to your irrigation system must be turned on in order for us to test your backflow.

Scheduling

To schedule a backflow test you may send us an e-mail at rdlbackflow@gmail.com (preferred for quickest response). If you prefer you may call our office at (614) 792-2889 and leave a message. Someone will return your call as soon as possible.
