Cities have a variety of inspection needs to ensure both residential and commercial requirements are being met.  From backflow prevention to fire safety to fats, oils and greases (FOG), a city's job is never done.  The problem with trying to manage all of these ordinances is that most cities have not turned to a unified approach of inspections.  Software that can adapt to any variety of inspection needs is truly required so one platform can be leveraged for all inspection reporting needs.  

The solution must adapt to the various data points of each inspection type yet provide a similar customer-focused model to capture inventory, allow for notifications/reminders and provide compliance reporting.

Contact Safe Water Commission to learn about a platform that can satisfy all inspection needs!

With states starting to enforce backflow prevention mandates, it is imperative that municipalities find a way to more efficiently manage their backflow prevention programs.  Like most other process improvements, better management needs to turn to technology.  A proper program encompasses dealing with a multitude of data points, so paper-driven processes will quickly over-burden resource constrained water departments.  

The solution??

Leverage software tools that help with all aspects of the program including:

  • Device inventory
  • Test submission from certified testers
  • Test result tracking
  • Compliance reports
  • Notification engine to device owners

Understanding the current state of all backflow devices is a critical component of any backflow prevention program, so all of the areas above must be managed effectively to create a mature program. Safe Water Commission can help simplify your program to ensure you are compliant!
