What is Backflow?

When you hear the term “backflow” in the plumbing world, we’re referring to the unfortunate event when there is a back pressure that causes water to run in the opposite direction of its natural flow. This frequently happens when a non-potable water supply operates at a higher pressure than the potable supply, which may allow unwanted contaminants to infiltrate drinking water systems. When this happens, it has the potential to cause severe health risks that could be easily avoided with professional backflow testing and prevention services.
