Why You Need A Backflow Prevention System Installed Onto Your Home's Water Pipes

Darren Kincaid - Monday, June 29, 2020
Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc - Backflow Prevention System

The backflow prevention system is installed within your home’s water piping ensures that water streams in one direction only. The backflow preventer ensures that your drinking water will not get contaminated by back-flowing water.

Water coming from the main supply line going to your home supposed to stream in one direction only, however, because of pressure changes inside the pipe, the water can reverse flow and stream back into the source. Backflow can take place when the pressure is lost due to a break in the main pipeline or when a hydrant is turned on. Since the pressure absent to push the water going to your home, it tends to stream in reverse back to the source pipeline. At this rate, public drinking supply can be contaminated with chemical substances like fertilizers, human excretions, soaps and chlorine.

This is where the role of a backflow prevention system comes in. It works like a one-way gate that enables water from the main public water pipeline to stream into the residence's piping line but blocks water in case it tries to stream backward. The backflow preventer is highly-recommended to residences with a well or irrigation system. The device should be installed in the water meter so wastewater will not contaminate incoming water.
