Residential Backflow Requirements
Since 1990, the Florida Building Code has required that residential irrigation systems have a backflow preventer. The state requires that homeowners have their backflow preventers tested every two years by a certified backflow tester, and that water companies submit annual reports on the compliance status of their customers.
Backflow Preventer Checkup Program
JEA’s Backflow Preventer Checkup program helps customers with JEA residential irrigation service connections comply with state environmental regulations designed to protect the quality of our drinking water.

Lawn Irrigation Systems
Customers who have an irrigation system that uses potable (drinking) water or an auxiliary water source that is not connected to a JEA irrigation meter are also required to have a backflow preventer installed on their system. Backflow preventers must be tested every two years in order to be in compliance with state environmental regulations designed to protect the quality of the public drinking water supply.
