Backflow is a term in plumbing for an unwanted flow of water in the reverse direction. When it happens, waste and harmful chemicals can render your water unusable.

Pressure issues in the plumbing system are the main cause of backflow. Common examples of pressure issues include a breakage in the municipal supply line and firefighting. Both scenarios can cause backward siphoning, pushing dirty water into the clean water supply lines.  Stand-alone fire suppression systems, irrigation systems, and other non potable water applications require backflow prevention devices.

The best way to prevent backflow is to install a backflow prevention device.

What Is a Backflow Prevention Device?

A backflow prevention device is an instrument you can install on water pipes to ensure that water only flows in one direction without reversing. With this device in place, your drinking water will not be contaminated even when a backflow-causing event occurs around your property.

With backflow preventers, you and your neighbors can have a clean drinking supply. They will also keep the city’s main water supply clean. For this reason, the state and local codes mandate homeowners and businesses to install backflow prevention devices on their properties.

Newer construction properties tend to feature these already, but if you’re not sure about your property, it’s best to schedule a professional inspection.
