What is backflow?
Backflow is a problem that occurs when the flow of water in the pipes is reversed. This can allow contaminants to enter the water you use, which could make you or other members of your family sick.
Many different situations can cause backflow. Some of the most common causes of this problem include:
- Having a water system supplied by a well
- Line flushing
- Breaks in city water line
- Problems with water hoses
- Toilet flush valves without an anti-siphon device
