Behind the Scenes: A Day in the Life of a Backflow Testing Professional

Come along with us for a day in the life at San Diego Backflow Testing!

I start my day by checking the route that has been scheduled for the day. I quickly look at my truck stock to ensure I have the necessary parts for the day, and then I’m off.

Once I make it to my first stop on my route, I then notify the tenant, homeowner, etc., that I will shut off their water briefly while the test procedure is taking place.

I then identify that I am testing the correct backflow device. I then inspect the backflow, ensuring it is testable and the valves and air compress hookups are working. I then observe the backflow and leaks and install them per the water district requirements.

Once I have done the required inspection, I test the backflow device and record my readings from the gauge. Once completed, I ensure the water is turned back on and that none of the air compressor hookups leak. I submit the readings that I have recorded to the appropriate water district. I continue driving around sunny San Diego County, completing my tasks and ensuring everyone’s water is the safest to my abilities.
