A backflow device is used to control a cross connection in a water system. The State requires a backflow device on all water services that are connected to a public water system. Town of Frisco plumbing codes also require separate devices past the initial backflow for various other hazards including; boilers, hot tubs, in ground irrigation systems and other possible situations that could affect the potability of drinking water.
To familiarize the customer with backflow devices here are some images of common devices found in homes and businesses in the Town of Frisco. There are many other types of devices but most are similar to these images.
The Town of Frisco is required by the Colorado Department of Health and Enviroment to survey every water service on the Town’s public water system for the degree of hazard related to cross connections and the backflow protection needed for that service.
The Colorado State Regulations for the uses and testing of backflow devices can be found here.
