Cape Fear Public Utility Authority requires cross-connection control devices (backflow prevention assemblies) to be tested annually by a certified tester to ensure they are functioning properly.  Backflow can be dangerous due to the risk of contamination of the drinkable water supply. 

My name is Shawn Mills, the owner, and operator of Cape Fear Backflow.  I am a NCRWA licensed backflow prevention tester. We service Wilmington and the surrounding areas with backflow testing for both commercial and residential properties.  I am licensed and insured and can perform basic maintenance should your testing determine it necessary.

  Failure to have your backflow preventer tested may result in a civil penalty and water service disconnection.

Questions about backflow testing?

Backflow testing is important to ensure the flow inside water lines is not affected in a way that results in the contamination of customers' drinking water.  Backflow can occur when unprotected water supply lines are attached to a container or pipe with substances not suitable for consumption or when pressure drops in the distribution system.

Backflow is the undesirable reversal of the flow of a possible source of contamination (water or mixture of water and other liquids, gases, or other substances) into the potable water system.  It can make for dangerous drinking water and should be tested annually. 

Backflow Preventers are mechanical plumbing devices installed in a plumbing system to prevent water from flowing backward in the system. A properly installed, tested and maintained backflow preventer at the service entrance to a building or property can reliably prevent the backflow of water of an unknown quality from flowing back into the community water system.

A cross-connection is any temporary or permanent connection between a public water system or consumer’s potable (drinking) water system and any source or system containing non-potable water or other substances. An example is the piping between a public water system or consumer’s potable water system and an auxiliary water system, cooling system, or irrigation system.

Yes, it is required for all commercial, industrial and irrigation customers and strongly recommended for everyone else! Cape Fear Public Utility Authority has compliance officers who are responsible for enforcing the CFPUA ordinance requiring backflow prevention assemblies for all commercial, industrial, and irrigation customers.  All backflow prevention assemblies are inspected and tested upon initial installation and are required to be re-tested annually.

Besides the fast response for a backflow test, Shawn stayed a couple more hours and went out of his way on a very hot day to help me with an emergency. I won't forgot his kindness!

Shawn was AMAZING! He came out and tested the backflow and discussed possible reasons for our unreasonably high water bill. He also tested our irrigation system. Very impressed with his knowledge of CFPUA and water usage in a typical household. Thank you so much, Shawn!
