Backflow Tags

Ensuring Safe and Reliable Water Supplies

Backflow tags, also known as cross-connection control tags, are visual indicators that are attached to backflow prevention devices in buildings. These devices prevent water from flowing in the opposite direction of its intended flow, which can lead to contamination of the potable water supply.

Backflow tags play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and reliability of water supplies in buildings. They provide a clear visual indication that backflow prevention devices have been tested and are functioning properly. Building owners and operators are responsible for the proper installation and maintenance of backflow prevention devices. Backflow tags help them track testing and maintenance schedules for these devices. Inspectors and other personnel can quickly identify tested devices with tags.

All of our custom backflow tags come with a complimentary label design service from our in-house graphic design team. We’ll get your tag looking the way you want it!

How do Backflow Tags Work?

Backflow tags are used to identify and monitor backflow prevention devices installed in a plumbing system. In the United States, backflow tags are typically used to ensure that these devices are inspected and tested on a regular basis to prevent contamination of the potable water supply.

  • Backflow prevention devices are classified into three types based on their degree of hazard protection: high, moderate, and low hazard.
  • Each type of device requires a specific color tag (red, yellow, or blue) to identify its level of hazard protection.
  • Inspectors or testers will attach the appropriate color tag to the device after testing it.
  • The tag will include information such as the device type, installation date, and date of the last inspection or test.
  • The tag will also indicate whether the device has passed or failed the inspection or test.
  • If a device fails an inspection or test, it must be repaired or replaced before the water supply can be used.
  • Backflow tags provide a quick and easy way for inspectors, testers, and other stakeholders to identify and track backflow prevention devices in a plumbing system.
