Cross Connections

Daystar Mechanical has technicians that are trained and certified in Cross Connection Equipment testing, certification, and repair. Daystar tests backflow prevention devices in Airdrie, Calgary and surrounding areas.

Cross Connection occurs when non-potable water enters the potable (drinking) water supply. Examples of contamination could be boiler chemicals, irrigation water, sewage and bacteria. Daystar’s technicians are certified by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to ensure the devices designed to keep our drinking water safe are operating properly. Every device should be tested and re-certified once a year by a qualified technician and the appropriate paper work sent off to the jurisdictional authority.
