About Safe Water Commmission

We realize that municipalities have major challenges meeting the State backflow testing requirements. We believed a new approach was needed to address the backflow testing problem.

Our initial vision was to help cities deal with the overwhelming challenge of managing backflow testing by providing services and technology that addressed the issue head-on while also providing the opportunity to provide confidence that the city is in compliance and less likely to get in costly litigation over water contamination issues.

From years of real-world leadership experience in the plumbing and irrigation industry, they used their collective knowledge to devise a business model that helped cities, water consumers, and testers benefit have a convenient and robust tool while still reaching the ultimate goal of protecting drinking water.
