WHAT IS WATER BACKFLOW?
- Like sucking a drink through a straw, contaminants can enter your drinking water line from “cross connections”.
- A water cross connection is where a non-drinking water substance (sometimes deadly) can come in contact with drinking water.
- Water cross connections can easily allow contaminants to enter water lines through a process known as backflow.
- PDM annual RPZ backflow device test or backflow preventer installation protects our water supply and meet state health codes. Phone 815-726-6264 for a convenient appointment.
- Water flowing in the opposite direction of its normal flow and caused by a drop in pressure in a water system (opening a fire hydrant?).
- Undesirable reversal of flow of non-drinking water substance through a cross connection and into the piping of a public water system
- Can allow bacteria, chemicals or physical contaminants to enter the water system and contaminate the water supply of not only at the contamination site but also for those who might drink water from water sources down the line from the contamination site.
HOW TO PREVENT WATER BACKFLOW:
- Prevent water backflow by creating an air gap, which provides a barrier to backflow.
- Have your water tested at least once a year because no matter how careful you are, careless neighbors, landscapers or other companies can impact your water supply.
