Backflow occurs when the water flows in the opposite direction to which it is originally intended to flow. Every time you fill a glass with water from the tap. Prepare a meal, or take a shower or bath, you rely on the quality of the water and that it is clean, pure and safe. Occasionally things happen that can affect the quality of your drinking water. One of the most common incidences is a burst water main. This creates a temporary loss of pressure within the water pipe or water main. When this happens, conditions are present that can allow the BACKFLOW of contaminants into the water system and threaten the safety of our drinking water. Backflow prevention is important safety measure for every household and business.

Two Forms of Backflow

  1. Backsiphonage (usually caused by the loss of pressure in the drinking water system i.e. a broken water main or burst pipe)
  2. Backpressure (caused by pumps, blocked drains, elevated piping systems or thermal expansion)

If your backflow prevention fails it can cause pollutants and chemicals to enter the supply of drinking water. Depending on what contaminant is mixed with the drinking water, you could be drinking water laced with poison resulting in sickness or even death.

Is Backflow Prevention Necessary? YES.

The backflow of undesirable contaminants into the drinking water is preventable. A cross connection is a physical connection between the water supply and any source of possible contamination. By eliminating or controlling all actual or potential cross connections, the drinking water system can be protected.

There are 3 levels of Backflow Prevention

Containment

This is when a backflow prevention device is installed at the boundary of a property. Usually at the water meter. This protects the water in the supply main from harmful cross connections within the property.

Zone Backflow Protection

The drinking water feeding a potentially harmful zone within a facility like a morgue at a hospital.

Individual Backflow Protection

When a piece of equipment like a chemical plating vat has water top up, a backflow preventer installed at the connection to the piece of equipment will ensure the safety of the drinking water.

Backflow Prevention For Property Owners

As a property owner it is your responsibility to ensure that the correct backflow device is installed on your property. The purpose of a backflow prevention device is to ensure that water from the property cannot draw back into the drinking water supply. The type of backflow prevention device that is required for a property depends upon the risk rating of the property with the potential hazard. The device should be tested annually to maintain the best protection.
