In general, you can expect the following series of events if your municipality has implemented this type of program:
You will be required to conduct a survey of your building for potential back flow and cross connection risks. We have a team of fully certified backflow testing specialists who will conduct this survey and report to both you and your Municipality. Our technician will indicate “degree of hazard” of each potential area of concern.
From there, we will work with you to correct any problem areas that were discovered during the survey and spell out the appropriate device or equipment required to fix the areas of concern.
After each backflow preventer device is installed, you will need to have each device tested, provide proper identification tags and submit all reports to the Municipality. Because there are moving parts inside backflow prevention devices, they can sometimes fail over time as they become worn out, or debris may become lodged inside, preventing proper functioning. Our technicians are trained on how to repair the devices. After a repair, the device is re-tested for proper function.
As your full service provider we document all your devices and notify you of your next required test date, so you never find yourself in a position where you are caught off guard with your Municipality. You can consider us your own personal backflow and cross connection management team.
