Understanding Backflow:

Backflow occurs when water flows in the reverse direction from its intended path. It’s typically associated with cross connections, where potable and non-potable water sources intersect. For example, a cross-connection might exist if your property receives both drinking water and water for irrigation from the same source.

Common causes of backflow include:

Preventing Backflow:

Effective backflow prevention requires annual inspections and the installation of appropriate devices to mitigate the risk of contamination. Backflow prevention devices are designed to keep water flowing in one direction, preventing the reverse flow of contaminated water into the drinking water supply.
