What Is Backflow?
The cross-connections in your home’s plumbing system are points at which non-potable water can come in contact with potable water, and are a pathway by which backflow can occur. This can arise from a number of situations, including reduced pressure in your plumbing’s distribution system or as the result of backpressure from a non-potable water source. When situations like these occur, the direction of your water changes and potentially contaminated water flows back into your distribution system.
Causes of backflow can include:
- Main breaks
- Pump failure
- Emergency firefighting water drawdown
- When heating/cooling, waste disposal, or industrial manufacturing is connected to the potable water supply
When backflow occurs, chemical, as well as biological contaminants, can enter your water supply, leading to illness and even death. Installing and maintaining backflow prevention devices can mitigate and prevent dangerous backflow in your home’s plumbing.
