Truth be told, it’s rare to hear about the dangers of backflow in a residential plumbing system. The reason for this is because today’s plumbing systems are already outfitted with backflow prevention devices to keep you safe.
However, a sudden change in the pressure of your pipes could potentially allow a nearby contamination source to move into your pipes, ruining your potable water supply with pesticides or other harmful substances. The solution to this is a backflow preventer.
A backflow prevention device comprises a mechanical unit with check valves that help protect the water supply from the threat of backflow and back-siphonage. It’s important to realize that only specialized plumbers are qualified to work with such devices. You should never try to install a backflow prevention device on your own.
