What is Backflow and how do you prevent it?
Backflow refers to the flow of water in a direction opposite to the normal flow, into the potable water system.
This can occur anywhere on your property, and could possibly siphon hazardous material back into your potable water supply system including the main water supply. If you are unaware of any potential hazardous cross connections that may possibly be made on your potable water supply piping system have it looked into by calling Vince.
Backflow can happen when there is a drop in correct water pressure somewhere in the system. Even if you have a back flow preventer installed and haven’t yet received inspection notice from your local water authority, it is a good idea to have the valve tested at least annually.
If you have any concern about possible cross connections made on your potable water supply system or need a backflow preventer test done, then simply just call Vince Marino.
