Are all plumbers Certified Backflow Assembly Testers?

Many plumbers have at one time had training in Backflow Assembly Testing, as it is included in 3rd year plumbing education. However, since most provinces in Canada require that certified backflow testers must renew their certification each year, many plumbers let their certification lapse and are thus not qualified to submit tests to the municipal water authorities and purveyors that require backflow assembly testing.

In the Vancouver Lower Mainland (Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Hope, Mission, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Richmond, Vancouver, Whistler) and throughout BC a “certified backflow assembly tester” is a person who has been certified by the BC Water and Waste Association (BCWWA) as a Certified Backflow Assembly Tester; has received formal training in backflow testing; and has renewed their BCWWA certification each year.

How much does Backflow Testing Cost?

We’ve called everyone in the city and we were quoted from $130 to $350 for our backflow assembly to be tested.
When we called, it seemed like the main factors in getting a quote were:

When we called big plumbing contractors they were organized and had receptionists, but didn’t have good resource management. They continually had to get back to me in order to find out more information from different parties.

When I called independent contractors, many were driving (unsafe?) working (Quality of work?) or simply didn’t answer the phone so we had to play phone tag.

Getting a quote for Backflow Testing in Vancouver was complicated, frustrating and exhausting!
