Why Do You Need Backflow Testing?

The simple answer: if there is a large backflow preventer on your property, you are likely required to have it tested by a certified plumber once a year or so. The longer answer: backflow testing helps to protect your property and the public water supply.

Backflow is the undesired reversal of wastewater through the water supply pipes. Water pressure should move water in only one direction—towards the pipes, faucets, and fixtures on your property. But when something happens to change the pressure within the water supply, wastewater may get forced back through the public water supply, which could result in contamination. This is something no one wants to be held responsible for, so don’t skip out on this service.

How Backflow Occurs on Residential and Commercial Properties

The pressure in your water system may change for any number of reasons. In any case, it may cause water to reverse its flow and move back through the public supply. Here are just a couple of examples.

  • Emergency service technicians access a fire hydrant near your property, causing negative pressure that allows water to get sucked back up through the pipes. This is called back–siphonage. Water and pesticides pooling around a sprinkler head could also get sucked in through the pipes and may lead to a health concern.
  • A tank of water on a commercial property has a pipe or a hose leading into it. The pressure of the tank exceeds the pressure of the water supply, forcing water and whatever chemicals are in the tank back through the piping.
