Backflow Prevention Testing
What is a cross-connection? Answer: A physical connection between drinkable water and a liquid or gas that could make the water unsafe to drink.
What is backflow? Answer: water flowing opposite to its intended direction, either from a loss of pressure in the supply lines or an increase in pressure on the consumer’s side.
Community public water supplies are required by State regulations to maintain active cross-connection control programs to protect the safety of water consumers.
Industries or facilities installing or possessing backflow prevention devices must have those devices inspected and tested at the time of installation and at least annually thereafter to ensure continued proper operation. Verification of inspection must be submitted to community public water supply officials, who must ensure that appropriate inspections and maintenance of all cross-connection control devices have been performed.
Molitor Plumbing has a licensed cross-connection control device inspector (CCCDI) on staff, who is certified in testing all backflow (RPZ) devices. Contact us today to discuss your device inspection and testing program needs.
