Why Backflow Testing?

In the State of Georgia, local municipal and State plumbing codes typically require the installation of backflow prevention devices in most commercial buildings and some residential buildings whenever there is a chance that a “backflow” of water could be sucked into the clean water system. The size and complexity of the installed backflow preventor will coincide with the specific back-flow risks that each situation presents. The bottom line is that backflow prevention is the key to protecting the clean water supply; most need to be tested annually.

What is Backflow?

In its simplest form, a “backflow” occurs when clean (potable) water reverses direction, causing a suction that pulls dirty water into the clean supply system. The “dirty” water can contain harmful chemicals, fertilizers, and even human waste…yuck! Anytime there is a cross-connection between clean (potable) water and “dirty” (non-potable) water, the chance of a back-flow exists. Consequently, backflow preventors are normally required at any cross-connections in residential, commercial, or industrial water systems.

What is a Backflow Prevention Device

Ranging from simple to extremely complex, these units are a series of check valves that prevent water from flowing “backwards” into the clean water supply during unequal water pressure or other unique pressure conditions or fluctuations. When installed and maintained correctly, a backflow prevention keeps the clean water supply safe.

Backflow Testing, also called Back Flow Testing

Most backflow systems must be inspected annually to verify their proper operation. Back-flow testing services are normally considered mandatory, with nasty enforcement actions possible against owners who do not complete the system testing promptly.

Accurately Diagnosing the Causes of Backflow

Backflow occurs when emergency hydraulic events within the public and private water distribution system affect the drinking or potable water supply. Negative or high pressure can cause contaminants to enter potable water pipes.
For example, backflow can occur in the following instances:
• A broken water distribution pipe or water main
• Drainage from properties resulting from plumbing work
• Large quantities of water used by the firefighters during emergencies
• Equipment or processes using pressure greater than that of the normal water distribution
• Large-scale power outages
