Great News from FM!

Today we received the following message from Chris, our project engineer at FM:

"I am happy to report that ALL your butterfly valve testing was completed successfully today."

This is great news as the FM approval of the entire Deringer Product Line is dependent upon the FM approval of the SS705 butterfly valve line. FM approval of the Deringer line will happen as soon as mid-February!

We would like to welcome the newest member of the Backflow Direct Team, Brad.

Brad Scott joins the Backflow Direct team as the DIRECTOR OF SALES AND MARKETING, responsible for maintaining a positive and efficient sales experience under our direct sales model, creating new and dynamic marketing strategies for the Deringer Line, providing technical and customer support, and contributing to the assembly of the Backflow Direct ASSOCIATE PROGRAM.

Brad started in the backflow industry at the age of 14 years old assisting his father in backflow repairs and installations. Shortly after graduating high school Brad became a certified backflow tester through the California/Nevada chapter of the American Water Works Association. In 2007, alongside his father, Brad assisted in opening Backflow Technologies, a Sacramento based sales and service company strictly dedicated to backflow.

Over the next seven years Brad gained comprehensive knowledge and experience in backflow sales and consulting, troubleshooting technical problems for testers/contractors in the field and spending many hours doing testing, repairs and installations. It is through this broad skill set and extensive background in the backflow industry that Brad will make a great addition to the Backflow Direct team.
