The motto of the Backflow Prevention Institute® is safe water through plumbing code compliance. Proper training and certification are the keys to achieving that goal. IAPMO's Backflow Prevention Institute is the industry's resource for backflow prevention and cross-connection control. It provides professional training exceeding the industry standards established by the American Society of Sanitary Engineering.
Water Institute researchers from the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health are partnering with IAPMO in an "Innovation Lab" to find ways to reduce recontamination in utility-owned water system pipes, buildings and homes.
