Is backflow testing required in Oregon?

Backflow testing is required in Oregon. It is usually required to be conducted annually to ensure that your backflow prevention device is working properly to protect your water supply from contamination. This is to ensure that water flows in the right direction and does not flow backwards into the public water supply. It is typically carried out by certified testers who are trained to test and certify backflow prevention devices. It is important to note that the frequency of testing may vary depending on the specific location and the type of device being used. However, annual testing is usually required.

What happens when you fail a backflow test?
If your backflow preventer fails the test, it will need to be repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
