Why do I have to test my backflow?

Mechanical backflow preventers have internal seals, springs and moving parts that are subject to fouling, wear and fatigue. Therefore, all backflow preventers have to be tested periodically to ensure that they are functioning properly. A visual check of air gaps is often sufficient, but mechanical backflow preventers should be tested with properly calibrated gauge equipment.


What is backflow?

Backflow is the undesirable reversed flow of nonpotable water through cross-connected piping of a public water system or consumer’s potable water system. The two types of backflow are backpressure backflow and backsiphonage.


What is backsiphonage?

Backsiphonage is backflow caused by a negative pressure (i.e., a vacuum) in a public water system or consumer’s potable water system, similar to drinking water through a straw. Backsiphonage occurs when there is a cessation of water supply due to nearby fire fighting, a break in a water main, etc.


What is a backflow preventer?

A backflow preventer is a mechanism to prevent backflow. Preventing backflow requires an air gap, that either eliminates a cross-connection or provides a barrier to backflow.
