What is Backflow?

As clean water flows to homes and businesses through municipal water lines, dirty water flows back through the clean water lines, which is known as backflow. It is often found at cross-connections between clean and dirty water within residential, commercial or industrial systems. Feces, chemicals, pesticides, and other hazardous materials are known to contaminate the water. Water contaminated with these dangerous substances is a serious health hazard if consumed.

Backflow Prevention

While most models are made up of a pair of mechanical check valves, backflow prevention devices are still necessary to prevent dirty water from flowing back into the clean water supply. Proper installation of the right backflow preventer will ensure that the water is clean and safe for drinking.

Backflow Testing

In most cases, the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and other local codes require any and all backflow valves to be inspected on an annual basis. These annual inspections are put in place to ensure that the property is in compliance with the local code in order to maintain safety. Businesses that fail to maintain code standards are subject to fines and other consequences.
