You may be asking, “What is backflow?” and “How does it affect me?”

How it happens: “Used” water is pulled back into the main water supply. Water that has left the main water supply, then entered into your home or business may mix with numerous contaminants is no longer safe for drinking. Once this water is pulled back into the pipes in the wrong direction, it has the opportunity to mix with the clean drinking water, thus it could contaminate the county or city water supply. When there is a sudden drop in water pressure in your area (such as during fire fighting) the drop in pressure is what then pulls water that has already been expelled back into the main water supply.

Keep in mind that the water lines entering your house are connected to the the restaurants in your neighborhood, local apartment complexes, and schools. All of us are connected to the same water supply! Backflow preventers do just what the name says. When water pressure drops, the backflow preventer seals shut. This prevents water from flowing backwards in the wrong direction. Call R.S. Andrews Plumbing to install, repair and test yours at 770-574-6700.
