What is Backflow and How Does It Occur?

Backflow is caused by either backpressure or backsiphonage.

Backpressure occurs when there is an imbalance in water pressure between the municipal water line and your private plumbing system. Backsiphonage is typically caused by damage to the municipal water main, or when a fire hydrant is illegally or improperly opened.

Cross connections between private plumbing lines and the municipal line can cause wastewater to enter the community’s potable water supply. Professionally installed backflow prevention devices are required to keep wastewater out of your clean water supply. Annual testing of your devices is also required to ensure that your backflow prevention system continues to work efficiently.

Backwater Valves: Does Your Home Need One?

Backwater valves are a type of backflow prevention device that is designed to keep sewer waste from backing into your home in the event of heavy rain or flooding. If you live in a low-lying area and use a sump pump, backwater valves are strongly recommended (and may even be required) as an added layer of protection.

If you are not sure whether your property needs to have a backwater valve installed, contact our experts at Serenity Plumbing Inc. We are happy to discuss your needs and will provide you with the information you need to keep your home safe and compliant with municipal regulations.
