What is Backflow and What Causes It?
Backflow can develop if there is a cross-connection between your private plumbing line and the city’s main water line. If there are no backflow prevention devices in place, wastewater can flow in reverse and enter the municipal water line, contaminating the city’s potable water.
Backpressure and backsiphonage can cause backflow.
If water pressure in your plumbing system exceeds the water pressure in the main municipal line, it can create backpressure and allow wastewater to mix with the municipal water supply.
Backsiphonage, another cause of backflow, is typically the result of damage or breaks in the city’s water main or a fire hydrant that is opened illegally.
Having an efficient backflow prevention system in place is crucial to keeping our community’s water supply free of wastewater. This is why it’s essential to have your backflow prevention system tested annually and repaired or replaced as soon as possible if problems are found.
