It's the law. NC Irrigation Contractors Must be Licensed.

North Carolina takes clean water and efficient use of this precious resource seriously. In 2009, the NC Irrigation Contractors’ Licensing Board was established. The Board oversees licensing for irrigation contractors to ensure water safety and efficient use.

It is against the law in North Carolina to construct and/or install irrigation without a license. Green Vision Landscape is a certified irrigation installer with the state.

Irrigation professionals, with assistance from the Carolinas Irrigation Association (CIA) and the Green Industry Council (GIC) drafted the bill that eventually became NC statute in response to droughts that forced municipalities to limit irrigation. But unfortunately, these actions were hurting the entire “green industry.”

Professionals wanted to get involved to ensure that high-quality, water-conserving irrigation systems were being installed.

Irrigation professionals know that irrigation can keep a landscape healthy and conserve water when installed, maintained, and operated properly.

Why Do Irrigation Systems Need Backflow Testing?

In Guilford County, North Carolina, backflow testing is mandatory bi-annually. Failure to keep an irrigation system operating properly can lead to fines, but more importantly, a broken system can introduce contaminates into drinking water.

Backflow testing ensures the backflow prevention devices we install can keep contaminated liquids from flowing back into local clean water systems.

Green Visions Landscape is a licensed and certified irrigation installer and backflow tester. We inspect and test backflow and upgrade systems where needed to keep your irrigation working correctly and water safe.

What is backflow?

Water is kept clean by ensuring it flows one way. That is from the clean source to the intended point of delivery, such as your home.

Backflow is the term for water flowing in the wrong direction, i.e., from your home to a municipal water system.

When backflow occurs, it’s terrible for water. In addition, chemicals, medical waste, or debris can enter your local water supply.

Professional irrigation stallers prevent backflow by limiting the number of cross-connections, tracking potentially hazardous connections, and regularly testing backflow and the prevention devices we install.
