Water Backflow - What Is It & How Do I Prevent It?

/

Backflow occurs when the pressure in your plumbing system is reversed. Contaminated water flows backward into your system, putting you at risk for serious health problems. This may be caused by a variety of factors, such as fluctuations in the city’s water supply. It is estimated that more than 10,000 cases of backflow occur annually in the United States, and it is important to take steps to protect yourself from the harmful effects of backflow.

Backflow may contain a variety of harmful substances, such as:

  • Minerals
  • Chemicals
  • Pesticides
  • Bacteria
  • Dirt
  • Industrial fluids

A Water Backflow Prevention Device Can Protect You from Dangerous Backflow

A backflow prevention device will automatically block contaminated water from entering your plumbing system. Once installed, this device needs to be tested once a year to ensure it is functioning properly.The device will sense reversed pressure and activate immediately to keep your drinking water supply clean and safe.
