Backflow Prevention Services in Wayne
What is Backflow?
Under normal conditions, water from a distribution system flows into a consumer’s premises. When backflow occurs, water flows from the consumer’s premises back into the distribution system (or from an isolated system, such as a boiler, into the consumer’s distribution system). If that water is contaminated, it can carry pollutants into the distribution system, which can cause illness, or even death.
How Does Backflow Occur?
Backflow into the public water distribution system can occur when the water pressure in a consumer’s premises is higher than the pressure in the water distribution system. This condition can be caused by a drop in water pressure in the distribution system (for example, because of firefighting or a break in a water main) or by the presence of systems within a consumer’s premises that operate at higher pressures than that of the distribution system.
Where Should One Have a Backflow Preventer?
For most cases, a backflow preventer is used in commercial buildings to protect the public from contamination due to attached machinery, tanks, and other water connected items. Residential customers will most often find a backflow preventer on the lawn sprinkler system and residential boiler system.
