Backflow Testing Request Form


Price List for Backflow Testing:
These are our standard prices assuming the device is easily accessible and the test can be performed during regular business hours. For a price for testing after hours, please call. We do offer bulk discounts for commercial accounts, please call us for a special price. We also recommend if you have a pool with an autofil and it has a backflow preventer, testing that device as well to ensure the pool water cannot get into the drinking water.

Please note that additional charges may result if the backflow is not reasonably accessible. In the event we must perform labor to simply be able to access the device (IE finding and digging it up, removing dirt from around devices buried underground in order to access the test ports, or having to work with abnormal above ground (non-approved) enclosures). We charge per minute of extra labor performed in addition to the prices below. This is to be fair to all customers and to avoid charging extra for those whose backflows are located below ground, but are easily accessible for testing purposes. 85% of the backflows we test are easily accessible as required per code.

Please note, we will leave the device exactly as we found it. It is is winterized, we will winterize it back down, if it is pressurized, we will not winterize it.

  • Residential Irrigation Service (scheduled for anytime)- $75.00
    • Irrigation Service where customer would like an appointment or certain date/time- $85.00
  • All Commercial Devices (Irrigation & Domestic) less than 3" in size- $85.00 each device
  • All Commercial Devices - 3" and larger- $100.00 each device
  • All Fire Lines- $150.00* each device

* = in order to obtain this price for a Fire Line test, we must have either the complete contact information of someone who is knowledgeable of the monitoring account number and pass code to shut off the alarm or we must be provided the contact information for the monitoring company, along with the account number and pass code. Time spent waiting on the alarm to be disabled so it can be tested without the prior information may result in additional charges. The monitoring company must be notified prior to the test being performed to prevent a false alarm from being triggered. Fire line backflows larger than 6 inches may result in additional charges depending on individual circumstances.

  • Backflow Tests are NOT subject to the new Sales Taxes charged on repair and maintenance services. However repair labor and materials are subject to sales tax and will be invoiced accordingly.
  • Kannapolis Water Customers- ADD $15.00 to the above prices. This is due to a new fee being assessed on all backflow tests (the fee is PER TEST).
