Residential Services 

We take our clean water for granted. But contaminants can get into our water supply through a cross connection – a link between your household water supply and a source of contaminants.

Book:

We book you in for arrival in a 2 hour time window.  It takes 20 minutes to test the device. We file the paper work to the City of Calgary once the test has been paid for. 

Test:

We need unrestricted access to the device.  Please have all items stored around the device moved away and give us lots of room to work.  We do spill a bit of water around the device.   The backflow device is usually found in the mechanical room or near to where the water meter is located.  We use a Watts TK-99E Backflow Preventer Test Kit.  Again, we do spill a few drops on the floor while we perform the test. 

Paper Work:

We submit the paper work to the City of Calgary or your respective municipality generally within 2 business days.  The City of Calgary does tend to have a back log of paper work and their automated system may send you another past due notice.
