Backflow Prevention Assembly Installation
Our technicians are qualified to install, replace, or remove any backflow prevention assembly located outside of a building.
What does a backflow assembly do?
Backflow is the reversal of water flow through pipes due to siphonage or backpressure. If backflow occurs in your irrigation system, it can cause water contaminated with chemicals or even animal wastes to be suctioned backwards into your drinking water. A Backflow Prevention Assembly is a mechanical valve that is designed to prevent possibly contaminated water from backflowing into the public water supply.
The Washington Administrative Code (WAC 246-290-490) requires that all irrigation systems connected to the public drinking water supply must be equipped with a backflow prevention assembly. It also states that this device, except in the case of atmospheric vacuum breaker valves, must be tested annually by a state-certified backflow assembly tester to verify that it is operating properly.
Common Backflow Assembly Applications Include:
- Boat Lifts
- Fire Sprinklers
- Boilers for Heating Systems
- Irrigation Systems
- Radiant Heating Systems
- Photo & Dialysis Equipment
- Swimming Pools

Northern Waters Inc. provides complete service for your landscape lighting, which includes design and installation of new lighting, repair of your existing lighting, and re-lamping.
Fixtures using incandescent bulbs will need to be re-lamped every one to two years. In contrast, L.E.D. lamps will last ten years or more. L.E.D. lamps also use one-tenth of the power of traditional bulbs, resulting in energy savings as well as reducing your electricity bill.
