Understanding Backflow Risks

Understanding how backflow happens is important to prevent contamination of your clean water supply. This happens when wastewater, gases, or other substances reverse flow allowing contaminated water to enter your freshwater pipes. This can happen when water flows back from irrigation systems or plumbing fixtures. Contaminated water can have serious health consequences.

There are two types of backflow, including backpressure and back-siphonage. Backpressure happens when the pressure in the downstream pipes is higher than in the potable water pipes. Back siphonage happens when water pressure drops in the supply lines, which creates negative pressure in the pipes. This can allow the flow of water to reverse and contamination of the drinking water supply.

Identifying & Preventing Backflow Problems

If you are experiencing backflow issues, you may notice a problem with toilets, sprinkler systems, faucets, pools, and other plumbing fixtures. One reason backflow testing is needed is that you may have a backflow problem and not be aware of it. Regular testing allows us to quickly identify and troubleshoot problems with your backflow prevention system.

The Backflow Testing Process

Backflow certification is required by law for all residential and commercial properties with backflow prevention devices. Certification requires annual to ensure that backflow devices are working properly and protect the public drinking water. The testing process doesn’t take long, but you should be prepared to have your water turned off during the testing.

The backflow testing process involves:

  • Turning off the water supply
  • Assessing the performance of your backflow device
  • Checking the direction the water is flowing in the pipes
  • Cleaning check valves
  • Attaching test hoses
  • Closing valves and watching for movement in the gauges
  • Making sure relief valves open when they should
