One thing to understand at the start is that a certified inspector is required to test backflow devices. Some plumbing-related jobs may be DIY…this one definitely is NOT! I am here to just show you what steps I will be taking in testing for backflow. And, by the way, I have been doing this for three decades.
Here are some of the steps –
1. I will turn off the number 2 shut off valve.
2. I then place a test kit on the device.
3. The test kit will use water left in the backflow.
4. Once the test is complete, I will turn the water back on slowly.
In addition, I will ensure that no damage is done to your property, be it residential or commercial. My name is Scott Swanson the owner of Bee Plumbing Inc.
