Re: The Latest on the Backflow Prevention

Has anyone had experience (good/bad) with plumbers installing these backflow preventers and/or experience (good/bad) getting the certified inspection letter stating they're testable?

I was at the meeting and remember something about there being several kinds, and that the least expensive was called RPZ (?) and that was all we really needed - and that the most expensive types could cost $30-40K. We don't want to waste that kind of money but we also don't want to install something we can't get certified, so we're just looking for some recommendations.

Steve's letter, while helpful, only addresses whether or not your backflow preventer is testable - it doesn't really address what the process would be in the event you don't have *any* backflow preventer installed.

Has anyone had good or bad experiences with various companies getting this backflow preventer installed and/or certified as "testable"?

Over the weekend we got an email from Councilman Fulop shedding at least a little more light on the whole thing. I imagine they'll be posting it here soon, but in the meantime at least, it included a list of certified inspectors (there are 5 right in JC - don't know if they also do installations).

only "fire prevention companies" are certified to do this work, per state law.


Our management had spoken with Pruzansky Plumbing, who was willing to do the work (maybe they're certified, I don't know).

But at $2-3K per unit, that is a rough one right now.

The Latest on the Backflow Prevention

Just curious how folks are managing with the latest letter from the city on the backflow issue... (did everyone even get a letter?) What are the next steps, finding an (ahem) honest plumber to go by the actual state code, or having the city prescribe the hardware needed? (some types of preventers are a lot more expensive than others)

The 90 day clock is running -and we now have a plumber quoting $10-20K for an 8 unit building depending on what the city tells us to do. Ouch.
