Cross Connection Photo Contest – The Bad and the Ugly

You’ve probably heard about the good, the bad and the ugly.  In the world of potable water protection and backflow prevention, a certified specialist tester or inspector will find Cross Connections that are controlled and in too many cases, a bad cross connection with no control.  The 2014-2015 Bad and Ugly contest was a success and it will now be offered on an annual basis.

Here is a chance to share what you have come across in the field, we are looking for the bad and the ugly…cross connections of course.

 

Some considerations for your photo:

  • Device selection
  • Hazard application
  • Device installation and orientation
  • Device height and access for testing
  • Device drain or lack of drain
  • Tag or no tag, test cock plugs or no plugs,
  • Using test cocks for other purposes
  • Device or assembly broken up
  • Poor plumbing practices, supports and connections and others.
