City Requirements for Backflow Testing

Backflow Testing Requirements in Lubbock, TX

The City of Lubbock and surrounding communities require backflow testing for both businesses and residential homes that meet certain requirements. Backflow preventers are devices installed on your main water line that keep the water flowing in one direction only. With these crucial devices, water cannot flow backward from the residence or business into the main city water supply. This helps keep public water supplies safer.

Earl’s Plumbing & Air has licensed backflow testers that can test, repair, and or replace any type of backflow device. We service all brands of backflow devices, from double check valves to commercial RPZs and anything in between. If you need help ensuring your community’s water supply is protected, trust our team to take care of the job!

What is the Lubbock Backflow Ordinance?

The City of Lubbock requires that certain buildings and homes have a backflow prevention device installed in their irrigation systems to prevent the contamination of the city’s water supply. Backflow can occur when there is a sudden drop in water pressure, causing the flow of water to reverse direction and potentially draw harmful substances into the water supply.

Backflow preventers act as a barrier to prevent this from happening. The requirement to have these devices applies to both commercial and residential customers, and failure to comply can result in fines or loss of water service. Testing should be done once a year for businesses and once every three years for residential houses.
