IAPMO Releases Backflow Prevention Manual
January 24, 2007
The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials’ Drinking Water and Backflow Prevention (DW&BP) division and the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors-National Association developed the “Backflow Prevention Reference Manual.” This collaborative effort resulted in the first-of-its kind manual for the industry. The 300-page publication contains full-color illustrations in real-world field settings. The manual contains sections relating to installation, testing, cross-connection control, repair and inspections. It can also be used as a textbook for these areas.
