Backflow 101

Backflow 101
Join us for a webinar to learn about backflow preventer products and applications.

This webinar will define backflow configurations typical to the fire protection industry. The presentation will also discuss the importance of pressure loss and water flow curves and how they impact fire protection systems. The final discussion will be on the difference between backflow certification and forward flow testing, including changes coming to the 2022 edition of NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:
     1. Identify low hazard vs high hazard in backflow applications.
