Why Backflow Prevention Is Necessary

Under normal conditions, there is no contact between the freshwater and wastewater sides of the plumbing in a home. But conditions can become abnormal in a hurry. A change in the pressure on either side can lead to backflow, where bacteria-filled sewage water is pulled into the freshwater side and creates major health hazards for the household. It can come from an increase in pressure from the wastewater side, pushing polluted water into the freshwater pipes, or a drop in pressure on the freshwater side, which will pull the wastewater over into the supply pipes. These conditions can occur for a number of reasons, most of which are not under your control: an accident at the sewage plant, a huge drain on water because of the fire department, a water main leak. Your plumbing needs to be prepared to prevent the consequences.

Backflow Prevention Testing

A backflow preventer is essentially a valve attached to the plumbing that will close if water attempts to flow the wrong way through it (this is called backsiphonage). It is situated so it will shut should sewage try to move upstream of the pipes. Your home should already have one in place. But the device must receive testing on a regular basis to safeguard health concerns. Only a certified testing plumber can do this job and provide the device with a clean bill of health. If the backflow preventer fails the test, a plumber can arrange to either repair it or have it replaced.
