If purchased Turfwater will go out to your property to winterize your backflow device for the winter and will go back out in the spring to start the system back up. This warranty covers your backflow system from damage due to freezing temperatures and if the backflow gets damaged then this warranty covers the costs of the replacement.
Standard Warranty Package - $65.00
Assuming all upgrades are installed on the backflow device we will go out to the property to drain and winterize the device and will return in the spring to turn the water back on. This package will place a warranty on the device through the winter.
• Spring Start Up
Premium Warranty Package - $130.00
Assuming all upgrades are installed on the backflow device we will go out to the property to drain and winterize the device and will return in the spring to turn to turn the water back on.
This package will also include:
-A system check of the whole property when the system is started back up back in the spring.
-Adjustments of any heads that are not spraying the proper direction
-Will provide an estimate on anything that needs to be repaired or replaced
-Programming the controller for Spring temperatures
-A class on programming the controller and how to maintain it throughout the year to the current resident.
• Spring Start Up
• Spring Irrigation Check
The backflow device must include the following items in order for the warranty to apply.
-2 drains to drain the water out of the device and are installed on the upstream and downstream sides of the device.
-Insulation to cover the PVC portion of the device above ground
-An isolation valve and valve cover to be able to shut the water off from the ground.
If any of the upgrades are needed then they will be performed at the time of the winterization for an additional cost. The price list is as follows (all materials are subject to tax):
• Add Drains $20.00
• Insulation $10.00
• Isolation Valve with Cover $18.00
• Labor for performing the upgrades $65.00
Example: If you are wanting a Premium Warranty Package and all 3 upgrades are needed then the costs to perform the winterization with warranty would costs $198.00 + applicable tax. (materials are subject to tax)
**(Ex. Calculations $130.00 warranty + $65.00 labor for upgrades + $20.00 drains +
$10.00 insulation + $18.00 Valve with cover = $243.00)**
Yes, if anyone other than Turfwater personnel turns the water for the backflow device back on then it will no longer have a warranty.
• The backflow device cannot be warranted without the required upgrades installed. Some properties may not need any of the upgrades and some may only need 1 or 2 as some may already be present.
• The costs of the upgrades are separate from the costs of the Package Warranties
• If the property is equipped with a double check backflow system then we will not be able to complete a winterization warranty. No charge for going out to the property if it has been assessed that it is a double check.
• In the event that the backflow has already busted, prior to winterization service, then an estimate will be provided to have it replaced before any warranty can be given.
