Backflow: The Hidden Threat to Your Water Supply

When water flows in the wrong direction, it can carry contaminants back into your drinking water, putting your family’s health at risk. That’s where backflow prevention devices come in – but do you know how crucial they are?

Backflow is the undesirable reverse flow of water or other substances into the water supply system. It occurs when the pressure in the public water supply system drops, causing water or other liquids to be drawn back into the distribution pipes. This can happen due to various reasons, such as a water main break, firefighting activities, or a sudden increase in water demand. Backflow can lead to the contamination of the public water supply, posing a serious health risk to consumers. To prevent backflow, water systems use backflow prevention devices, such as check valves or reduced pressure zone assemblies, to ensure the water flows in the correct direction.

What is a backflow prevention device?

A backflow device is a critical component that prevents contaminated water from flowing back into your clean water supply. It’s a simple yet essential safeguard that ensures the purity and safety of your water.

It is a mechanical assembly that is installed in a plumbing system to prevent the undesirable reversal of the normal direction of flow in a water supply. It is designed to stop the backflow of contaminated water from re-entering the potable water supply.

This is the third time I have used the Fawcett Group and the whole crew did an amazing job with renovating my bathroom/toilet/laundry areas all because of a leaking problem and I couldn't be more thankful for the wonderful job they have done. They were all professional, polite and let me know step by step what was happening! Thank you so much!

Great work from Reece & his partner on the day. Had the job quoted by Joszef on Wednesday, and able to get Reece in on the Friday before Christmas for a BIG day's work. Unbelievable response time & great work from the guys. Can't recommend highly enough - everything is working like a dream, and the place was left cleaner when they started. Really impressed & will be back!
