Primarily, I inspect/survey for plumbing cross connection's and have commercial customers comply with local code/ordinance, state and federal regulation regarding the SDWA. Depending on the level of hazard to the local distribution system, I have the entity install the appropriate BFP on the domestic or fire line taps for containment. This responsibility and authority also extends for isolation applications. Is the device chosen to be used for non-health or health hazards?
