Backflow Preventer

Backflow Preventer is very important. Backflow is a reverse flow of water from your house pipe to the main water supply pipe. As opposed to the conventional flow of water from the main supply pipe to your house pipe. This house pipe could be your drinking water pipe, irrigation pipe, tank pipe, etc. Why does the water flow backward? It flows backward due to Siphonage when the pressure becomes low in the main water supply pipe. As well when the water of the house pipe, connected to a water tank immersed in a water tank flows back and mixes with the water of the main supply pipe.

Other reasons for backflow may be bursting of the pipe or installation of several hydrants on the same pipeline for any purposes, including an irrigation system. Here the irrigation system means a sprinkler which waters a garden or a green roof. When no water flows from the main supply pipe to the sprinkler, pressure loss causes backflow of water logging around the sprinkler. This may cause contamination of drinking water supply with pesticides and fertilizers used in the garden.

In other words, backflow caused due to higher downward pressure compared to the upward pressure results in chemical contamination of drinking water, and hence ruins health. It is especially important for people with gardens to install backflow preventers for their own health concerns. It is equally important in any water-based business such as car wash, dry cleaners, swimming pools, dental offices, and restaurants for the maintenance of public health and safety. All in all, none should take backflow lightly.
