What is the cost to the property owner?

The property owner is responsible for having the proper back flow devices installed. For an average single-family home, if the owner installs these devices themselves, their cost should be less than $60. The initial home inspection is provided by the Utility at no cost. If any corrections need to be made after the initial inspection and a re-inspection is required, the Utility will also perform this re-inspection at no charge.
