BackflowTestReport.com Frequently Asked Questions or Information Page

This is Not Just a PDF Creation tool that can be used when you are in the field and need a form to send the customer.

This is also the fastest way to get your backflow prevention testing paperwork back from backflow testers in the field.  The days of repeatedly asking for paperwork are over.  Just log into the admin account to see the reports.

Are you tired of looking at badly hand written test reports that are full of errors?  We were too!

This is the best way to access your reports from any internet connection in the World.  If your computer crashes, phone dies, your office floods (Thanks Harvey, Allison, ETC……), you will still have access to all your reports at a seconds notice.

We have over 30 Backflow Test Reports forms available for the City of Houston and Surrounding Cities.

Sample forms created with the software

Thank you for trying a new simpler way of entering, managing, and providing your customers with professional looking backflow test reports.

First, we will give an overview of how the software is set up.  There are 2 components to it, a smart phone version and a desktop version.  Each component will access the same data whether you enter it from you phone or desktop.

From the Desktop you may hit the print button and it may not print.  The Print button will put your test report into a PDF file.

If your form does not print file to a PDF when you hit the print button from the desktop you may want to check your popup settings,  usually in the upper right corner when you try to print from the desktop.  Simply allow popups from www.backflowtestreport.com

From the Phone Version, when entering addresses please try not to use symbols like # or &.  Using these symbols will interfere with the printing option or email function.

You may ask yourself, “I am on a cell phone where am I going to print a form?”  This function creates a PDF and Emails the PDF to you immediately.  This file can then be sent to your customer or printed out on a mobile printer.

One of our favorite features is the duplicate button.  This allows the tester to file multiple test reports for the same property without having to retype or rewrite the address, gauge information, and company information into each additional backflow report.  This saves an enormous amount of time and of Course, TIME is MONEY!!

Our Next favorite feature is the print multiple forms.  This allows the tester to print several forms at a time and time and saves hours when turning in forms to the city or providing reports to your clients.  This can also allow you to send 1 email instead of 1 email per form.  Huge time savings

Favorite feature is the Search function, you can search by street number, street, city, or test date.

We are developing a reminder feature that will email monthly reports that have expired test reports to remind you to contact your customers to perform the annual inspections as they become due.  This is just one more way to save time and test more backflow preventers.

One Question we get a lot is “Who can access my forms and information?”  The Web Developer has access to this information.  The Web Developer is Richard Korts with RK Associates in California, richardkorts@gmail.com  We do not have access to individual tester, report, or customer information.

If you have test reports that you would like entered into our system that are not yet available, let us know.  We may have a nominal charge.  We will add Dallas, Austin, and all surrounding locations.  We will also be entering forms for other states.  If you are in another state and interested in our system, please send us an email at dan@backflowtestreport.com or call/text to 713-518-9660.

This software is developed for the tester to aid in reporting, tracking, managing backflow test reports.  It is not a catch all system like so many of the online services that make backflow test reports idiot proof.  The tester is responsible for the accuracy of the test results.  This will allow the tester to make mistakes and provide the water authority the opportunity to screen its backflow testers.
