The Importance of Backflow Prevention

When there is a loss of water pressure, it can cause water to flow backward in the system, which is known as backsiphonage. This can cause the water supply to become contaminated with toxic chemicals and other contaminants. Depending on the contaminants that are present in the water, this can cause a potential public health crisis.

A loss of water pressure may be caused by:

  • Water main breaks

  • High water usage, such as for fighting fires

  • Sprinkler systems for watering lawns

  • Certain industrial equipment

  • Cooling towers

  • Fire sprinkler systems

  • Hose attachments for sink faucets

  • Mop sinks

  • Water or chemical tanks

  • The elevation of a building

Backflow prevention devices are designed to prevent back-siphonage in the event of a sudden drop in water pressure. The device senses a change in pressure or water flow and quickly turns off the water supply. This prevents contamination of the fresh water supply and protects public health.

When we come to your home or business for annual backflow prevention testing, you should expect to have your water supply briefly interrupted during the testing process.

We recommend informing anyone present in your home or commercial facility of this interruption in advance.
