Making Sure Your Backflow Prevention System is Up and Running
Do you have a backflow prevention system installed? Is the system updated and working effectively? Backflow prevention systems are crucial in making sure that your incoming water is safe from pollution and contamination.
How does my water get contaminated?
Backflow prevention ensure that dirty water leaving your house is pushed out of the way and not mixed up with the clean incoming water. Without a backflow prevention system, low water pressure can allow dirty water to flow right back into the supply lines. Human waste, bacteria, soapy water, and all outgoing substances mixed in with the dirty water can sneak back into your incoming water supply simply due to low water pressure. Low water pressure can occur after any pipe burst or any broken water line.

Check often the quality of your sink water. If you start to notice any discoloration or unpleasant taste or smell, you might want to check your backflow prevention system.
