What Is Backflow Testing?
Backflow testing is a technique used to check your water supply to make sure that drinking water is not being contaminated by dirty water. Normally, the water that enters your home is kept at a set pressure to allow the flow of water throughout your home. If your pipes experience an unexpected drop in pressure due to them bursting or freezing, wastewater from the ground can infiltrate your water supply.

How to Prevent Backflow
Backflow can be prevented by using an air gap. This involves leaving an empty space between a place where water collects and the devices that connect to your plumbing systems, such as taps and valves. Another way to prevent backflow is by using backflow prevention devices, such as a backflow preventer valve. These devices can help to maintain the right water pressure so that water can flow to other areas of the home. A reputable plumbing contractor can install a backflow prevention device in your plumbing system.
Backflow prevention devices can certainly help. However, they are not always effective. That is why it is important to have backflow testing done at least once a year to make sure that the water that you and your family are drinking is safe to consume.
