Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester

  • The City of Southlake will no longer require the tester to register directly with the City. The registration fee of $100 currently charged by the City will no longer be collected.
  • The tester will register with VEPO, LLC. The registration fee will be $25.
  • The tester will be charged a fee of $12.50 for each device for which information is submitted by the tester.
  • Testers will no longer be able to submit testing information through paper format.
