As a resident of Miami, you may have recently received a notice from Carlos Alvarez regarding the required backflow prevention assembly installation and the requirement of “Reduced Pressure Principle Assembly.” So what does this mean to you?

What is a backflow prevention assembly?

A backflow prevention assembly is a essentially a valve which allows water to flow in one direction only, assuring contaminated water cannot flow back into a water customers home or business and cause a cross contamination.

Do I need to have the assembly installed / tested?

According to Miami Code Enforcement, effective December 31, 2011, “Miami-Dade County Code, Chapter 32, Article VIII, requires backflow prevention assemblies to be installed on certain services depending on the degree of hazard, the type of service.” This means things like your lawn irrigation system, domestic water system, and even fire suppression system are required to have a tested backflow prevention device.

This newly enforced code also states that these assemblies need to be tested upon installation and once every year thereafter. For more information you can read the actual copy of the Miami-Dade County Code, Chapter 32, Article VIII, here.
