Preferred Backflow Vendors

JEA’s preferred vendor list is offered to customers for their convenience in choosing a vendor who meets our requirements to test, repair, replace and install backflow preventers. We do not recommend one vendor over another.

Questions to Ask When Selecting a Backflow Prevention Vendor

  • What do they charge for the annual test?
  • When can they can come and do the test?
  • Do they have a business license and insurance?
  • Have they received their certification from a nationally recognized or state certification agency?
  • Do they have a list of references or a list of satisfied customers?
  • Does the company abide by and have a signed a Code of Conduct with JEA?

If an assembly fails the test, it will need to be repaired or replaced and retested. Assemblies are designed to last many years, and they often can be repaired inexpensively. Sometimes all the assembly needs is a good cleaning. The repair on small assemblies normally does not take more than one extra hour of labor.

Non-residential backflow preventers are required to be tested annually. Residential backflow preventers are required to be tested once every two years. Whether or not you receive a courtesy reminder from JEA, you need to contract to have your backflow preventers tested before the due date. Be sure to have the test done early and don’t wait until the end of the month. Many customers wait until the last minute and testers are very busy trying to meet the deadline.
