Commercial Backflow Preventer Testing & Certification

Backflow Preventer Testings and Certifications for Commercial and Multifamily Residential Properties

Looking for multifamily residential and/or commercial backflow preventer testing and certification? Xcel Plumbing & Heating Inc. offers backflow preventer testing and certification services to help you stay in compliance with New Jersey building and fire codes.

Commercial Backflow Preventer Testing and Certification by Xcel Plumbing

Discounts are provided for properties with five or more devices, and Xcel can handle testing for properties with 50 or more backflow preventer devices.

New Jersey regulations require commercial and multifamily properties to install backflow preventers on all cross-connection points in their water and sprinkler systems where there is the potential for contaminated water to mix with the property’s potable water supply. These devices must be installed by a certified contractor and approved every year. Xcel Plumbing offers certified backflow preventer testing services with several testers on staff to address your needs at your convenience, during or outside of regular business hours.

Commerce Backflow Preventer Testing — When to Test

Local municipalities are responsible for scheduling and conducting inspections of commercial backflow preventer devices. To ensure compliance with local building and fire codes, these devices are required to be certified before final inspection and at least annually thereafter. Be sure to check with your local municipality as some areas require quarterly commercial backflow preventer testing.

Note that inspectors are not permitted to conduct testing; this must be done by a certified commercial backflow preventer device tester. Our testers are certified by the New England Water Works Association.

Commercial Backflow Preventer Certifications — What’s Included

Xcel Plumbing will certify our testing results in writing and include:

  • date of testing
  • type and location of devices tested
  • results of testing
  • signature of qualified tester

Once this information is provided to the local inspector, you can expect to receive a Certificate of Compliance which meets both building and fire code requirements and is good for a period of one year.

The Xcel Plumbing Advantage

Not all commercial backflow preventer devices are equal. Different cross-connections pose different risks which may require the use of different types of backflow prevention based on the degree of the hazard. Our qualified commercial backflow preventer testers can easily identify these differences and ensure the proper device is being used. Should you have the wrong device or a faulty device on any connection point, our technicians are prepared to replace or repair your backflow preventer so that it meets regulatory standards, saving you both time and money.

Our commercial backflow preventer testing is done at a nominal cost, and we offer discounts for properties with five or more devices. We have several qualified testers on site and can handle testing for properties with 50 or more backflow preventer devices. Call (973) 770-1611 today to schedule your testing.
