What Is Backflow?

What is a backflow assembly?                    

A backflow assembly is an approved, testable assembly which uses valves in different configurations to prevent polluted or contaminated water from reversing direction and flowing backward.  Common uses are on fire sprinkler systems, irrigation systems, boiler make-ups and domestic water services.

 

Why they are needed?

A cross-connection control program protects the potable water supply from contaminants and pollutants being introduced into the potable water system by backsiphonage or backpressure. Approved backflow prevention device assemblies are necessary to protect the potable water from cross-contamination. Understanding backflow prevention device assemblies and why they are used requires knowledge of what a cross-connection is and why backflow can occur at a cross-connection.

 

Who needs a backflow prevention device?

Anyone with an alternate source of water such as a well, spring, stream, irrigation system, or two or more meters serving one parcel must have a backflow prevention device. Commercial and professional  buildings with fire sprinklers, lab equipment or boilers require a backflow prevention device.

 

When do I need to have my backflow assemblies tested?

Each backflow assembly must be tested and certified upon installation and re-certified according to the state mandate.
