Backflow Prevention

We are certified by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) in cooperation with the Cross Connection Control Foundation of the Niagara Frontier Incorporation for the installation, testing and repair of all commercial and residential backflow prevention devices. These devices can range from small vacuum breaker type backflow prevention, to dual check-valve assemblies (DCVA’s) and reduced pressure zone valves (RPZ’s) ranging in size from 3/4″ to large commercial applications. DCVA’s & RPZ’s both require annual inspections per NYSDOH regulations.

Our annual inspection program includes the following:

  • Competitive pricing
  • Automatic in-house scheduling¬†& reminders
  • RPZ & DCVA testing
  • Comprehensive report database on all testing results & any maintenance performed

    • Monroe County Water Authority (or respective water purveyor)
    • New York State Department of Health
