The invisible Threat!
What is backflow?
It is when contaminates get into the drinking supply. The unwanted reversal in the flow of liquids which has the potential to pollute the potable water supply.
So how could this affect me?
Hose connections are of a concern because of the possibility that they may become submerged in a contaminated, non-potable liquid. If the hose inlet is submerged and there is a loss of pressure, back siphonage could occur, drawing the contaminated supply into the system. This would also include spa pools and swimming pools.
Irrigation systems are a concern because of the likelihood that chemicals will be added to the system or applied to the ground. This would include any pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizer applications. When chemicals are applied to the ground they may be introduced into the water system through the inlets on in ground sprinkler heads.
At work it can happen on boilers- fire sprinklersfume cupboards- car/truck washes- post mix and many more. Anything that uses water and is connected up to a machine has the ability to contaminate the water.
All commercial buildings need to be checked at some stage. If there is potential for contamination it can be made safe and most times it is not expensive to achieve safe drinking water for everybody.
