There are two types of backflow: back-pressure and back-siphonage.
Backflow can reverse the flow of water or other substances into the public or private water system, resulting in chemicals or contaminants getting into the drinking water. In other words, due to changes in pressure, the water can flow in the opposite direction from what is intended. This is why the installation, inspection and proper maintenance of Cross-Connection Control Devices is imperative to the safety of your drinking water.
Backflow preventers are required to be tested annually, at a minimum. This assures that the assemblies are maintained and are in working order. If regular testing is not performed, your water system will be at risk. Governing agencies also require that the water purveyor track the history of each assembly, as well as track the testers, their test kits, and the annual calibration of their test kits.
