Keep Our Drinking Water Clean
keep your drinking water clean by having your cross connection device tested annually
Calgary Cross Connection Test is an Accredited Business with the BBB since October 2009 and have been in operation for 16 years. Helping homeowner's keep their water clean by testing their back-flow devices on their home water systems. We are certified plumbers and certified cross connection control specialists.
There are many types of backflow prevention devices. Some require testing and some do not. Testable backflow preventer devices are called cross connection devices. Cross connection test devices can be installed on your irrigation water system, boiler system, plumbing system or on your water main. These are mechanical devices designed to allow your water to flow out but does not allow the flow of water to come back in. Should the flow of water reverse, contaminants can enter our water system. This can affect your water, your neighbour's water and the City of Calgary's water.
The cross connection test device prevents any contamination to the water that we drink by keeping hazardous chemicals used on lawn care or within heating systems out of our drinking water. As this device is mechanical, there is a possibility of failure. Due to the hazard of contaminants getting into our drinking water, the city of Calgary makes it mandatory for homeowners and businesses to have these devices tested annually. The cross connection test ensures that the backflow device installed on your waterlines is working properly.
It is a homeowner's responsibility to hire a certified cross connection tester. There is no fee collected by the City of Calgary. The service fee Calgary Cross Connection Test charges covers our travel expenses to get to your home, perform the cross connection testing and the cross connection device reporting. The City of Calgary requires the cross connection device report to be filled out and sent into the city by a Certified Calgary Cross Connection Tester.
