What is Backflow and Why is It a Concern?

Backflow occurs when the normal flow of water is reversed, allowing potentially contaminated water to enter the clean water supply. This can happen due to changes in pressure within the plumbing system, often caused by events such as water main breaks, heavy water usage, or faulty pump systems. Contaminants like chemicals, bacteria, and other harmful substances can enter your water supply, posing serious health risks.

The Importance of Backflow Preventers

A backflow preventer is a device installed in your plumbing system to prevent backflow from occurring. It ensures that water flows in only one direction, protecting your potable water supply from contamination. Regular testing and maintenance of these devices are essential to ensure they are functioning properly and providing the protection your water supply needs.
