Frequently Asked Questions
What is included in a backflow assembly test?
ABC will conduct a test, complete a test report and submit the report to you and the proper jurisdiction (Usually the water district). The cleaning of the assembly needed to facilitate a passing test, if necessary, is included (Same trip as the initial test). There are no hidden costs (like: trip fee. gas fee, submittal fee, equipment fee).
Our reliable, professional specialists perform operational testing that conforms to WAC 246-290-490 test procedures. All field test gauges are calibrated annually to ensure correct and accurate readings. After inspection the assemblies are tagged and our office staff prepares and submits all test reports to the appropriate water authorities as required, with additional copies sent to our customers. A copy is maintained in our customized database maintaining pertinent info regarding your backflow assembly for future reference. We are recognized by all water purveyors as a quality testing company. We contact our customers in advance of the required test date to ensure operational tests are scheduled and performed timely in an effort to meet compliance requirements by local water authorities. Please don’t be fooled by other backflow testing companies who tell you pricing is in accordance with the size of assembly! The operational test is the same whether it’s a ½” to a 12” assembly. Therefore, we at ABC charge the same price regardless of size.
