What is A Backflow Tester

A backflow tester is an individual that has gone through rigorous training to be able to test and troubleshoot backflow prevention assemblies.  The City of Coalinga recognizes certifications from both the American Water Works Association(AWWA) and American Backflow Prevention Association (ABPA).  A backflow tester should be able to show you his credentials should you ask for them.  Be sure the tester you are hiring holds one of these two credentials.  If they do not, the city will not recognize your test report as valid.
