The testing of your Calgary backflow device must be performed by a certified Calgary Backflow Tester annually. KaiTech Plumbing & Heating has qualified testers on staff to conduct tests, perform repairs, and certify the newly repaired device. The test requires temporarily shutting off the water, takes less than half an hour to complete and involves opening and closing the valves to identify any irregularities.
If a problem is detected with the backflow device, we will provide you with the results of the testing and discuss what is wrong with the system. We take the time to fully explain the problem and any repairs that may be needed to ensure that your drinking water is protected. Our licensed Calgary plumbers provide the necessary repairs to fix any irregularities, so you are in compliance with all regulatory requirements. We install, test, and maintain backflow prevention devices, placed on both commercial and residential water supply lines, to ensure there is no cross contamination and your drinking water remains safe.
We perform backflow testing to ensure that:
To save you time, we will submit all necessary paperwork after completion and email you a copy of the sent report, so you don't have to!
Backflow prevention systems are most often installed in commercial buildings; however, some residential properties are also required to have these systems in place—particularly if your home features cross-connections between your plumbing system and the municipal water line. Calgary residential properties featuring the following systems will be required to install backflow prevention assemblies:
These water systems mentioned above can potentially result in cross-connections and introduce contaminants such as chemicals, chlorine, pesticides, and even human waste into the community’s potable water supply. KaiTech Plumbing & Heating is here to help you install the right type of backflow prevention device to help your property remain in compliance with the City of Calgary regulations. We can provide you with code compliant backflow devices, including:

Many homeowners aren’t aware backflow can be a serious issue and therefore don’t consider it a threat. If your home plumbing system suffers from backflow, the chances of harmful substances entering your water supply increases significantly.
Defective Backflow devices can result in contaminated water seeping into the main water supply system.
Don’t put the health of you or your family at risk. If you notice the water flow in your home has been interrupted, it’s a good idea to call a certified cross connection specialist to perform backflow testing services to make sure your water is safe for drinking, washing and bathing.

Call KaiTech Plumbing & Heating for immediate backflow service. We will perform a thorough inspection of your backflow prevention system, including checking for valve leaks. If there are any issues with your backflow device, we will alert you to the problem and carry out the necessary repairs and/or replacements.
After completing the test, we will fill out a report and submit it to the city. The entire testing process typically takes thirty minutes to complete if there are no pre-existing issues with your system.
A cross connection is any connection between pipes that carries water, potable or non-drinking water. So wherever a cross connection exists, a backflow device is required. When functioning properly, a backflow device prevents unsavory odors, tastes, or harmful contaminants from mixing with drinking water. Typical cross connections include: radiant heating systems, boilers, hot tubs, sprinklers, swimming pools, soda fountain machines, irrigation systems, and suppression systems.
Cross Connection Control devices are required by law to be tested annually, and a report needs to be filed with the City of Calgary afterwards. Most Backflow assemblies include a check valve (or valves), a set of springs, and once in a while, a relief valve comes with it. Each of these parts must be inspected and tested annually to ensure that they are properly maintained. To pass inspection, check valves must be able to hold a minimum amount of pressure.

Backflow occurs when clean drinking water becomes contaminated with wastewater. This happens with a reverse in water flow, which is caused by back pressure or back siphonage. Calgary Cross Connection Control devices ensure this never occurs by only permitting water to flow in one direction. It is essential to have the proper backflow prevention systems in place and tested annually to ensure they are working properly.
