Can my home or business be “grandfathered” in for the backflow devices?

There is no “grandfathering” of backflow devices which are out of compliance with current regulations.  The State considers backflow regulations to be a health and safety issue.  These issues must be addressed in a timely matter for the safety of the public water supply and the health of our customers.
