Backflow prevention device testing is an integral part of the system with which we keep our water safe. At the point where public water is delivered to a water customer and becomes private water, backflow prevention devices keep the flow of water moving in just one direction. Private water, which may have been altered, treated, or contaminated, can never be allowed to return back through the pipes to contaminate the public water supply.
Backflow prevention devices keep this reverse flow of contaminated water from occurring. These backflow devices require a test of their correct operation at least once a year to ensure that they are continuously working to protect our water.
HOW DO I GET STARTED OR WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
I RECEIVED A DEMAND FOR BACKFLOW TESTING... NOW WHAT?
You’ve received a notice from your local water authority that is requesting a backflow test. Whether it’s for your municipality, the health department or another authority having jurisdiction over your water, this notice demands that your backflow prevention device be tested and receive a passing test result. Backflow testing can only be performed by a certified backflow tester.
