Re: 2024 Backflow Device Inspections

This is Jake Paddock representing backflow man. I am offering my services again this year for backflow testing which is required by Grand Traverse county DPW. I am offering the reduced rate of $40 per outside device. I would need mailed to me a copy of the test report form that the county has sent out and a check made out:
Jake Paddock
Po box 83
Buckley, MI 49620

I will also be passing out flyers at some point this week

After receiving the form and the check, you will be put on my list to do during the weekend of Memorial Day. The irrigation system will need to be on in order for me to perform the test. After Memorial Day my price will increase. Thank you so much.

Irrigation systems will need to be turned on by May 15th for the inspection to take place. If your system is not turned on when the inspector shows up they will charge you an additional fee of $45 for a return trip. Note: You do not have to wait for the inspection to take place before you start using your irrigation system.

  • You do not have to be home for the inspection to take place unless your backflow device is inside.
  • I will provide the inspector with the list of homes to be inspected along with an inspection form. I already have a copy of all inspection forms. To be included in the bulk inspection process you will have to get me a check made payable to “Arms & Cole” in the amount of $17 by May 15th
  • If the inspector identifies that your device is in need of repair there will be an additional charge to you from Arms & Cole. They will notify you prior to any repairs and give you an estimated cost of the repair. Each year about 15 systems fail the inspection and require minor repairs.
  • You may choose to have another company/individual complete your inspection at their rates. Contact the Department of Public Works at 995-6039 for a list of approved inspectors. Let me know if you choose another option and I will get your inspection form to you.
  • Payments will have to be in by May 15th to be included in the bulk inspection process. Please mail your payment to Granville Management Inc.
  • Inspections will take place on May 20th & 21st. The inspector will deliver the completed inspection form to DPW. You should not expect to be contacted by anyone unless there is a needed repair.

Should you have any questions or concerns about this matter, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely, Tim G. Webb Property Manager
