What is Backflow?
Backflow is the reversal of water flow due to a sudden change in water pressure, backflow could contaminate the public water wherever a cross connection exists. Backflow prevention device is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow. In water supply systems, water is typically maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap or other fixture.
Backflow is a state-regulated system requiring the installation of a backflow prevention device at each cross-connection point found within the plumbing systems of apartments, condominiums, food establishments, and most public and commercial places. The type of backflow preventer required for each establishment changes with the degree of hazard present on the premises.
