As experienced Backflow Inspectors, the paperwork is more than half of the Battle
How many times have you tested a backflow preventer?
You left a copy in a plastic bag on the backflow preventer, emailed the test report, and been paid?
When you get the emergency call that goes something like “Hi you tested my backflow preventer back in June can you send me a copy of the backflow test report? I need in NOW”. Emergency requests could be for reasons like:
My water is turned off or about to be turned off.
I am closing on a house and the mortgage company won’t close until they receive the Backflow Test Report.
I am closing out a permit and the original was lost or got wet.
Most of the time you get that call, you are in your truck and can’t access your paper records immediately. You will have to get back to the office at the end of the day and hunt through the file cabinet.
