Depending on the size and location of the backflow preventer it could take anywhere from 5-30 minutes.

Typically, a residential domestic is located at a water softener or filtration system. For commercial, a may be located on the main water, drink machine, filter, or ice machine per city codes.
Usually by the water meter.
For a residential, a fire line typically would be in a panel in the garage.

Only if the backflow is located inside of the home, if the device is an irrigation backflow it is usually located outside.
If required by the city, ABP is licensed to install any irrigation, domestic or fire line. Pricing depends on what the cities require.
Most cities will send a warning with a testing deadline. In some cases, they can turn off the water and / or fine the customer.
