What is Backflow Prevention?

Backflow occurs when water flows undesirably in the opposite direction from where it should be flowing. There are a number of devices that provide backflow prevention to stop this problem or to reverse it when it ultimately happens.

Often times, backflow takes place when storm water inundates a sanitary sewer line, causing everything within the line to backup and flow out of piping system openings such as toilets, sinks and sewer openings. This can cause contaminated water to flood a basement, crawl space or other rooms within a building. Contaminated water could also make its way into the drinking system, creating an unsafe potable water system.

Is backflow prevention necessary?

Backflow prevention is necessary to keep you and your family safe! When backflow occurs, water, potentially from an unsanitary source, can enter your potable water system, contaminating your drinking water. This water can also backup through sewer lines, flooding your house and causing major water damage, which can cost thousands to remediate.
