A backflow preventer is a device used in residential and commercial water systems to protect against contaminants entering the water supply. It works by using a valve to stop any backward flow of water from an irrigation system, sprinkler system, lawn, boiler, or drinking water. Residential backflow preventers are usually installed on the main line of a home’s water system and should be tested annually for proper functioning.
Irrigation backflow preventers are also available for use with sprinkler systems and other outdoor watering devices. These devices must also be tested yearly to ensure that the water supply remains safe and free from contamination. With regular annual testing and maintenance, backflow preventers can help provide assurance that your lawn or garden will stay healthy and green.
Backflow testing is important because it ensures the safety of a water system. Without annual backflow testing, these devices may not function properly and could potentially lead to contamination of the water supply. Backflow testing also helps to detect any existing contamination issues and can help make sure they are corrected before they become a major problem.
