Certified Backflow Repair Company


When you need your backflow preventer assembly tested and repaired, you need to call a Certified Backflow Repair Company.

Not all plumbers are qualified to work on backflow preventer systems. To be certified, a plumber must attend professional training sessions that teach all the aspects of backflow testing and repair. Courses are offered that teach the following skills:

  •  backflow prevention assembly tester and repair
  •  cross-connection control surveyor
  •  program administrator/specialist
  • fire sprinkler cross-connection control test

Each course includes an American Society of Sanitary Engineering certification exam at the conclusion of the training. These ASSE certifications are recognized by model plumbing codes in the United States, including the Uniform Plumbing Code.

Certification is awarded to those who pass a 100-question multiple choice closed book written exam, and demonstrate proper test procedures on a number of different assembles.

Why Do You Need Certification?

Backflow prevention is serious business. The equipment used is specialized and specific for the different prevention needs of each situation. Taking the training course teaches plumbers exactly what to look for, how to test for weaknesses in the system that might lead, or are leading, to dangerous pollution of potable water, and what repairs each system requires.

Of course, it's best to have your system inspected and tested at the time of initial installation and annually after that.
