  What is A Backflow?

A backflow occurs when water flows in the opposite direction. Usually this is caused by a reduction in water pressure. When the pressure drops in the pipes, then water in boilers, irrigation system or fire suppression systems may be pulled back into the system. This kind of water may contain contaminants such as chemicals, human waste and others making it potentially harmful to people.

To prevent a backflow from occurring, a backflow prevention device is installed in the system. This device allows the back-flowing water is contaminated to flow out of the system through a valve before it mixes with the clean water.

  Why is Backflow Testing Necessary?

The backflow prevention device is a mechanical device containing springs, valves and some moving parts which means that it is bound to fail at some point. This is why the device requires annual testing to ensure that it is working as required and preventing cross contamination of the water. After the test is done any repairs and replacements of parts is done.

The law clearly states that backflow testing should be done annually to determine whether the device is working properly. This is to ensure the safety of the people visiting your convenient store and using your water supplies.
