As a homeowner there is probably nothing worse than having non-potable water back up into your plumbing system. This occurrence is called backflow and can directly affect the clean drinking water supply in your home. Even worse, it can cause serious disease such as E. coli, Salmonella, Legionnaires, and Staphylococcus to enter your drinking water.
How Does Backflow Occur?
Backflow occurs when there is a reversal of your plumbing system’s water flow, causing contaminated (dirty water) to flow in the wrong direction. This dirty water then enters the “clean” drinking water (via back pressure or siphonage) and carries contaminated water into clean water lines.
