Irrigation Backflow Preventers protect your drinking water
GRU delivers safe, high-quality water to your home or business. Our Backflow Prevention program, which is required by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), protects the community’s water supply by preventing water from unknown sources from entering the distribution system. Irrigation Backflow Preventers (BFPs) are a crucial part of any irrigation system. BFPs prevent non-potable water from mixing with your drinking water. This is why state and local laws require property owners to test backflow preventers. A certified tester is required to submit proof of testing to GRU within 30 days of testing.
