The city authority says that the water should be safe for consumption and it can be done by making sure it is not being contaminated due to the usage of a hydrant, due to the repair of the main supply pipe, and due to the immersion of a hose in a water tank. All these factors take place due to a pressure called back pressure. Because of this pressure, home water mixes with source water. Through the main water supply pipe, source water reaches thousands of people, including our neighbors and communities.
As a human-being, it is our responsibility to participate in the provision of safe drinking water, and we can do this by installing a backflow device in our home. We can also install backflow devices in commercial sites, such as restaurant, hotel, hospital, including car washing places where there are 100 % chance of backflow. The best way to install a backflow device is through a plumbing company. Installing a backflow device means having and providing safe drinking water to one self, as well as to others all the time without fearing about the back pressure of an irrigation system of a lawn or of hose through which source water is likely to get contaminated in our unawareness. The installation of a backflow device is good for our health, and it has to be tested after every 12 months in Toronto.
