#Causes of Backflow

  • Backflow contamination usually happens either because of back pressure or back siphonage.
  • Due to increased pressure in the pipes, potable water from within your premises flows backward and can enter the sewer lines.
  • Low in pressure in the main lines due to a burst pipe.

In many places, a backwater valve should be fitted within your property line. In this case, you will not have a choice to install outdoor backflow prevention. For this case, your plumber should know the city rules to do things right.
