Backflow Prevention Program

What is Backflow preventer? A backflow preventer is a device constructed to protect your building’s potable water from cross-contamination with systems such as your heating boilers/chillers or other chemicals that may enter your system by flowing back into your potable water.

Mandatory yearly testing

In Ontario, it is mandatory, as per code and for insurance purposes to have all backflow devices tested yearly by an approved, licensed and accredited plumber.
As of March 2018, the City of Ottawa, Backflow Prevention Program (BFP Program) is in effect.
