LB Water an Authorized Distributor of VEPO CrossConnex Online Backflow Management System

Free software helps water utilities manage backflow compliance more efficiently and cost effectively

April 09, 2019


SELINSGROVE, Pa. – LB Water, an industry leader in supplying waterworks-infrastructure solutions to cities, counties, municipalities and businesses throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, is now an authorized distributor of VEPO CrossConnex. The CrossConnex software is designed to help water utilities better manage backflow compliance efforts to ensure contaminants are not infiltrating their potable water networks.

State and county regulations require certain customers connected to public water systems to install and maintain backflow-prevention devices to protect water networks from contamination and to have the devices tested annually. Utilities serving the customers must arrange for registered, third-party testers to collect the data, which utilities then must maintain, track and report to regulatory agencies.

Many utilities still use a manual testing system that involves handwritten test results, filing of paper documents and manual entry of test data to create reports – expensive, time consuming processes that require physical storage and can often lead to data-entry errors.

The VEPO CrossConnex software, which VEPO offers free to water utilities, streamlines the process. Utilities can require their independent testers to use the software, with end users paying the testing costs. The cloud-based software and available Apple iOS and Android apps allow utilities to have secure access to information and conveniently manage their account and testing data.

"This is an exciting partnership with a company that has decades of expertise in the water industry," said Alan Seiler, managing director of VEPO CrossConnex. "Teaming up with LB Water will provide critical distribution for our cutting-edge software for water utilities throughout LB Water's entire footprint. Preventing contaminants and pollutants from entering water systems is of utmost importance. We're excited that our software solution can help water utilities do that more efficiently and cost effectively."

"We're  very pleased to partner with VEPO in offering this powerful software. VEPO CrossConnex will allow our customers to save money, save time and be in full compliance with their backflow testing requirements," said Shawn Pulford, CEO of LB Water. "It's another smart solution that we can offer to utilities."
