Backflow device testing

For those RRWSC customers who received a backflow prevention testing letter from PGMS, our water system operator, they indicated in the letter if they didn’t receive the testing certification by the due date they could have the service performed on your behalf and the charge would appear on your water bill.

In the event that PGMS performs the testing they have provided the following costs: testing $75/unit; if the unit fails but is repairable the cost is $125 – $175 inclusive of testing; a new unit costs about $350 and this includes the testing charge.

RRWSC does not endorse any particular BPAT certified tester; this information is provided for comparison purposes only to assist you in meeting this TCEQ requirement. Should you decide to use and contract PGMS for this service please have them bill you directly and not through your normal monthly water bill.
