1. Select Administration from the navigation menu, and then select Hazard Types.

2. On the Hazard Types page, click New Hazard Type.

  • Name: Add a name for this new hazard type.

  • Hazard Level: Select Low, Medium or High from the dropdown list.

  • Required Device Type(s) for Hazard: Select the applicable backflow assembly/assemblies required for this hazard type.

  • Comment: Include additional information about this hazard type as needed.

4. When you're finished, click Create Hazard type.
