Who Maintains & Tests a Backflow Assembly?

It is the responsibility of the property owner, unless an agreement between owner and tenant exists, to maintain and test backflow assemblies.  Orange County Health Department maintains a list (click here) of certified backflow testers that can test, maintain, and repair backflow assemblies.  Please also refer to our SMWD Backflow webpage for forms and instructions.
