Backflow tests

Well my back flow tester has finally been able to schedule back flow tests for my customers.  George caught up with me last Thursday in Broken top.  George and Pattie do back flow testing for six months and then enjoy the remainder of the year.  I want to stress it is important to have your irrigation back flow tested every year.  The back flow prevents the contaminated irrigation water from entering the house drinking water.  We do not want the bacteria from the landscape to be in your drinking water :(   The back flow device prevents this from happening.  I need to ask George but, if I remember from when I was testing back flow devices it was a 1 in 10 to 1 in 15 failure rate.  What is the health of your family worth?  I am on a private well and not obligated to have my back flow  tested, but I choose to have it tested.  The health of my family is worth the small cost of the test.  Thank you George and Pattie for great work.
