We are not affiliated with ASSE, which is sometimes required, especially if testing for AQUA Pennsylvania. Around 25% of water purveyors and localities do have some type of deal with ASSE.
Our course and certifications are based on the TREEO materials, so many water purveyors accept our course due to this, notable Pennsylvania American Water. Many smaller jurisdictions have no real preference and accept our course or anything equivalent.
Some places do list an American Backflow Prevention Association (ABPA) Certification, which our course is valid as a pre-requisite training and prep for this exam. The application and manual are linked below.
Since there is no state level agency regulating testers, each local jurisdiction chooses which backflow testers to accept. Most accept either ASSE or ABPA testers, but many also accept NEWWA, TREEO, or reciprocate with neighboring states.
Do you need a backflow test kit or need to calibrate a test kit you already have? We offer both of these, check out our sister company Kruger Instruments for more information:
