What exactly is Backflow?

Backflow occurs when your water that is supposed to be coming into your home in one direction normally will reverse and thereby create what is called “backflow”. This backflow can allow a potential hazard of contaminants into your drinking water supply. This is what our specially trained technicians are trained to prevent. The designing of water systems vary regarding commercial and residential, but the basic system operation has the same outcome of preventing backflow at all cost. Of course the larger the pipe the more intense the backflow devices are required to keep the water flowing in the correct direction at all times.
There are two ways backflow may occur: Back-siphonage: which is when there is a reduction in your water pressure. For various reason like maybe a main break that causes the flow of water to slow. Water will follow the least resistance, which in turn will create backflow with possible contaminants. Back-pressure: this is created when your water system exceeds the pressure in your potable system. This will naturally occur to make up for the loss of water. The potable water system will force the water to reverse its direction. This again can result in contaminants entering your water supply and diminishing your quality of water. All water systems contain backflow prevention devices that need to be installed correctly and maintained to keep running proficiently. When backflows occur, your equipment is at risk as well for corrosion and possible malfunctioning. Any malfunctions can put you and your family’s health at risk.
