Who can install a backflow device?

Anyone can install a device; however, District approved Certified Testers are responsible for performing accurate tests, and repairing or replacing devices that fail. Additionally, testers must report all repairs and test results to Rancho Water. The tester is required to give a copy of the completed test report to the customer and email a copy to BACKFLOW@RANCHOWATER.COM. A list of approved backflow testing companies can be found here.
