Backflow prevention devices keep your water clean and potable by keeping pollutants from contaminating your water supply via backflows, which is when wastewater runs in the opposite direction. When that happens, you can be exposed to contaminants that can make you moderately to severely ill as mentioned before.
Drinking water can also be contaminated by backflow from the following places: fire sprinkler systems, commercial boiler systems, underground lawn irrigation, and boiler systems with anti-freeze.
Backflow prevention assemblies have parts that can wear out and cause backflow contamination. This is why it’s crucial that you have a functional backflow prevention device in place for your home or complex.
While a backflow prevention device is key, proper installation and maintenance are critical.
Protect yourself from backflow contamination and ensure that your water supply is safe and sanitized by opting for a backflow testing service from an accredited backflow testing service provider.
