Frequenty Asked Questions
In it’s simplest form a “backflow” occurs when clean (potable) water reverses direction causing a suction that pulls dirty water into the clean supply system. Needless to say the “dirty” water can contain any number of harmful chemicals, fertilizers and even human waste…yuck! Anytime there is a cross-connection between clean (potable) water and “dirty” (non-potable) water the chance of a back-flow exists.
The short answer: It’s required by most cities in California.
The longer answer: Backflow Preventer Devices ensure that your home or building is safe from your water system being contaminated from sources out of your control. Public water systems can be cross contaminated from sources other than drinking water.
There is also the possibility of backpressure, when the upstream water pressure in a piping system drops to a subatmospheric pressure. This happens in high demand times and can be dangerous to building occupants and your water system.
Backflow testing is required annually by most cities throughout California in Apartment, Condominium, Restaurants, Commercial, and other multi-family dwellings. This ensures that the drinking water for that occupancy is not just safe for human consumption, but also not cross-contaminated with water waters and other non-potable sources.
