Public health officials have long been concerned about cross-connections and backflow connections in plumbing systems and in public drinking water supply distribution systems. Such cross-connections, which make possible the contamination of potable water, are ever-present dangers. Qualify under new Minnesota training requirements (ASSE accredited). This course trains plumbers, sprinkler fitters, utility personnel, maintenance personnel and industrial and private water purveyors in procedures for testing and troubleshooting of back flow prevention assemblies. You will learn about the need for water supply protection, the potential hazards of cross-connection and the methods, devices, and assemblies available to protect the water supply.
