Backflow preventers are required by law in Florida. Besides having to be installed in accordance with building and plumbing codes, all commercial backflow assemblies require yearly testing by a certified contractor to remain in compliance with the codes set forth by the county and or state.

Mechanical backflow preventers have internal seals, springs, and moving parts that are subject to fouling, wear, or fatigue. Also, mechanical backflow preventers and air gaps can be bypassed. Therefore, all backflow preventers have to be tested periodically to ensure that they are functioning properly. A visual check of air gaps is sufficient, but mechanical backflow preventers have to be tested with properly calibrated gauge equipment.
