Full Description

Backflow Technicians are at the forefront of our business. They are the people who get us in the door with most of our customers. Our business has a leg up in the industry by providing certified backflow testing and maintenance. From there we expect our technicians to inform the customer of the many other services that we provide. We look for technicians that have a great attention to detail. Technicians also need to be able to work independently and self driven. There is a strong emphasis on understanding the equipment used to perform these jobs as well as the maintenance for that equipment. The technician is responsible for making independent decisions under pressure on critical needs.
