Yuck, non-potable contaminated water entering your facility



A simple and effective approach is our backflow preventer inspection


Benjamin Franklin famously advised fire-threatened Philadelphians in 1736 that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

In 2021, we can certainly heed the same advice when it comes to preventing changes in water pressure that can cause unwanted sewage and other contaminants to enter our property.

Backflow happens when water, water, and other liquids, or gases, reverse inside the system and flows in the wrong direction. Contamination of your water system can lead to business disruption, as well as serious illness and even death.


CAP recommends an annual backflow inspection


One main cause of backflow is backsiphonage, which occurs with a change in water pressure. This is often the result of a water main break. Another common cause of backflow is backpressure. This happens when there is an increase in water pressure. If a system, such as an irrigation system becomes clogged or a pump malfunctions, an increase in water pressure can occur. Depending on your location, you may be required to have a backflow inspection performed annually.
