I hope that means no more underground backflow preventers.
Would love to be able to test. Legally can't here because of the plumbing unions and how they were able to get the laws in Illinois passed. Time to move?
One of the few things I contributed to when I was with I.A. was to block that stupid-ass law in Illinois; an embarrassment to our trade.
I found a really old backflow device the other day. It was a ball valve tied into the potable line.
Prevents backflow as long as it's closed.
my guess is anybody who did service in N. TX would be thankful to have DCVAs in boxes. Too many freezes and can't really shut down systems in the winter. As long as you can get to the testcocks I don't have an issue with it.
For one or all the official backflow testers out there, why not show us a copy of the paperwork you generate when you test a device?
Here's a form from Indpls Water.
I still have my cert. Not testing much. I think with a little hussle and marketing you make a little side biz for rainy days.
Keep that cert, as the mind rots and you don't do much testing, you'll have a hell of a time being re-certified.
water hammer/ backflow, look at this tool for unclogging drainlines
