When contaminated/drainage/sewerage water flows in the opposite direction and mixes with clean water, the process is called backflow. What is even more disturbing is that backflowing can occur at any joint or connection between the two pipelines. This backflow is usually a result of a considerable and sudden change in water pressure. For instant, a burst pipeline or a blocked exit, can all cause a serious backflow. To prevent backflow from occurring, regular backflow testing has to be carried out.
Backflow can mix clean water with dirty water. The former can include sewerage water. Just imagine the implication of such a mixing of clean drinking water and wastewater. Contaminated water can result in numerous diseases and even outbreaks of pandemics, therefore, backflow prevention is extremely important at every installation whether residential, commercial, or industrial.
Safety devices are installed for preventing backflowing. These devices operate in case there is a dramatic and unexpected rise or fall in pressure.
Backflow preventers have to be installed properly to ensure that they stop backflow to clean water lines to prevent contamination. These backflow preventers are tested and checked by government regulations. A landlord or property owner can be fined if backflow preventers are not operating properly. Our expert plumbers can provide you with regular Backflow testing and installation so that you do not run into any legal trouble. Prevention and testing are necessary steps required for condominiums, apartments, restaurants, and other places. Furthermore, backflow testing has to be performed annually on all premises to ensure compliance with municipal regulations.
