Section 4101:2-51 (Ohio Plumbing Code) of the Ohio Administrative Code requires any connection to a public water supply that utilizes a backflow prevention device be tested to determine if it is functioning properly.
**THIS DEVICE MUST BE INSPECTED AND TESTED AT THE TIME OF INSTALLATION AND ON A YEARLY BASIS THEREAFTER.
Testing must be performed by a person possessing a valid certificate for testing reduced pressure principle backflow preventers and double check valve assemblies issued by the State of Ohio, Department of Commerce.
A list of local individuals certified as testers can be found here.
The testers are to complete the applicable test and maintenance report form and forward it to this office as soon as possible but no later than ten (10) working days from the date that the meter was set or water turned on to the premise. Non-compliance to this letter may result in a discontinuance of your water service.
