Keep your drinking water safe. We provide conveniently scheduled backflow testing, repair and installation services to the Greater Vancouver area. We pride ourselves on educating you, the water customer, on how to reduce the risk of inadvertently contaminating your private or the public water supply.
Why do I need my backflow assessed?
Backflow assemblies and devices have parts that can break down and wear out, just like the parts on your car.
By having the backflow tested annually, you will help to ensure the drinking water supplied to your home remains safe.
Because backflow assembly parts can break down and wear out, most lower mainland cities have created by-laws to help ensure the safety of our drinking water.
At MDT Backflow, we have certified backflow assembly testers on staff, who have attended a rigorous training program and are certified by the B.C.W.W.A. to inspect, test and repair all backflow assemblies and devices.
