What Is Backflow?
Backflow is a term that refers to unwanted water or other substances flowing in the wrong direction into the piping of a public water system or consumer’s potable (drinking) water system.
There are many reasons why backflow occurs. Some of the reasons why backflow may occur include water main breaks or fire hydrant use. It may also happen when the pressure in the property owner’s equipment is greater than the pressure in the drinking water line.
A device called a backflow preventer helps to protect a consumer’s potable water supply, as well as the supply of a city’s water system, from being polluted or contaminated by backflow.
