"Backflow Prevention Assemblies. Putting a Lid on Contamination"
If not tested regularly, a backflow assembly malfunction could contaminate your local water supply, leaving you vulnerable to unnecessary liability. Cintas Fire performs routine testing to ensure you comply with all state and local codes.
- Per NFPA 184.108.40.206, all backflow preventers installed in fire protection systems piping shall be tested annually by conducting a forward flow test of the system at the designed flow rate, including hose stream demand, where hydrants or inside hose stations are located downstream of the back flow preventer.
