Backflow is the reversal of the flow of non-potable water or other substances through a cross-connection and into the piping of a public water system or consumer’s potable water supply. Backflow is a serious issue that can cause the public water supply to become undrinkable.
The mechanism for preventing this undesirable cross-connection is a backflow preventer assembly. A backflow preventer assembly provides a physical barrier to prevent backflow.
The principle types of backflow preventers include: reduced pressure principle assembly, pressure vacuum breaker assembly and double check valve assembly. A residential dual check valve assembly is a secondary type.
A backflow device on water supply lines is required by local code in many areas. Backflow devices must be inspected annually to ensure proper operation. These regulations exist to protect the public’s safety.
