Certified Backflow Assembly Testers (BAT) are required to know the Field Test Procedures for four types of assemblies: Reduced Pressure Principle Backflow Prevention Assemblies (RP); Double Check Valve Backflow Prevention Assemblies (DC); Pressure Vacuum Breaker Assemblies (PVB); and Spill-Resistant Pressure Vacuum Breaker Assemblies (SVB). In the field BATs see many RPs and DCs, but few PVBs and SVBs.
This course is designed to review the Field Test Procedures for RPs and DCs and spend more time focusing on the Field Test Procedures for PVBs and SVBs. This course is also targeted at BAT contractors who want to work during the day and brush up on their knowledge of testing procedures during the evening.
