If you have a septic system with a sprinkler, you may have received a letter from the San Antonio Water System (SAWS) about a required inspection for your backflow preventer. SAWS requests these inspections to help avoid cross-contamination and to protect the water supply they provide.
We receive many calls from septic system owners in the San Antonio area requesting help with inspecting their backflow preventer. Did you know that backflow preventers aren’t related to your septic system? While we would love to help, plumbers and irrigation system companies are much more equipped to provide the necessary inspection. For more information on backflow inspections, visit the SAWS website.
