Speaking of JEA

Speaking of JEA…..letters have been arriving regarding back flow preventer testing and state environmental regulations.

As apparently mandated by the state of Florida DEP (Department of Environmental  Protection) any property with an irrigation system should have a back flow preventer and if it has not been tested (for proper operation) in the last 2 years, owners will be required to do so.  This must be done by a certified tester. 

JEA offers 2 options on facilitating this (see link below); one option has JEA taking care of it and the other allows you to choose how it’s handled but there is a time sensitive deadline!

Bear in mind if the testing, however administrated, finds failure you may need to be prepared for repairs and/or replacement. 

 Why is proper operation of the back flow preventer important? Parts can fail or corrode over time and it is the mechanism that keeps chemicals, grit and other pollutants, etc.  from entering the public water supply.
