How Backflow Can Occur
Backflow can happen in one of two ways:
- Pressure - Back-pressure can induce the water pressure in a plumbing system to exceed that of the water distribution system, causing the water to reverse flow. Elevated tanks, chemical feed pumps, recirculating systems or boilers can have backflow problems.
- Back-Siphonage - Negative pressure in the water system can cause back-siphonage, with the drop in water pressure drawing the water backward through the water system. This may be due to a leak in the water mains, or a high withdrawal rate of water, such as during fire fighting.
Prevent Backflow Issues With Timely Inspections
Protecting the health of occupants of your property is of paramount importance. This is why we suggest conducting regular backflow preventer inspections on your water distribution systems. Constant fluctuations in water pressure could cause recurrence of backflow incidents, which can lead to contamination of your potable water. The highly experienced team at Fire Protection Team will inspect your property and suggest any adjustments or repairs to your backflow preventers if needed.
Why Timely Testing and Maintenance is Key
Why is regular testing advised? Well, small problems that pass by unseen, or untested, could blow up into major crises before you know it, turning into unpleasant, expensive challenges for your business.
Backflow preventers need to adhere to state, local and federal regulations; compliance with these is essential for your operation. In order to prevent the contamination of your water supplies, testing should be done regularly. Fire Protection Team can help keep your regular inspections and testing up to date.
