Backflow prevention is an important part of protecting our potable water supply and Cross Connection Backflow believes it to be so important that is all we do.
The annual testing of backflow assemblies is to ensure that the assembly is working as designed and within the test parameters. If a backflow assembly is not working properly it may put the public's health at risk by allowing the reverse flow of water and potential pollution or contamination to our potable water.
It is often assumed that water flows through the pipes in one direction, the truth is that water will flow to where the demand is, if there is a greater demand at the building next door or a fire hydrantis opened on the next block it can cause a syphon affect. A backflow prevention assembly would stop the syphoning affect from surrounding buildings that could pull contaminates or pollutants into our potable water.Backflow can also be caused by "back pressure" from a mechanical device such as pumps, elevated water tanks or multi level buildings.
Uniform Plumbing Code, State, Local and Federal Laws require backflows to be installed,annually tested and maintained; these mandates protect the potable water from cross contamination due to backflow. Without backflow prevention assemblies there would be a risk of people getting sick or worse due to polluted or contaminated drinking water.
