Backflow Gauge Services
A backflow preventer technician is only as good as his equipment, the most important being the backflow test kit. A backflow test kit is made up of a differential gauge, needle valves, plumbing, hoses and a carrying case. Most manufacturers will recommend that your test kit be verified for accuracy at least once a year. If the gauge does not read within the manufacturer specifications, then the gauge must be calibrated. Calibration is the actual repair or adjustment that returns the gauge to within proper specifications. Verification of accuracy for each backflow test gauge should only be done with equipment that is NIST traceable. (National Institute of Standards and Technology)
