How a backflow condition can occur
Backflow is the reversal of water flow through a cross connection from a possible source of contamination into the public drinking water system. Backflow may be caused by either backpressure or backsiphonage. A loss of pressure in the public drinking water system may lead to backsiphonage through unprotected cross connections, or backpressure may be created when the water pressure of a facility’s internal water system is elevated above the supply pressure of the public drinking water system resulting in backflow through unprotected cross connections.
Tips for hiring a plumber for backflow testing:
- Make sure they are a licensed plumber
- Make sure they are a licensed cross-connection control device inspector
- Both licenses are required in the state of Illinois if your backflow is to be tested
- Ask for upfront pricing
