Five Products Used for Protection from Cross Connections

Backflow Can Occur Two Ways:

  • Negative pressure causes a 'back-siphon.' Negative pressure creates a partial vacuum in a sealed tube or distribution system that can siphon liquid into a potable water system. Remember, liquids will flow toward the point of lowest pressure.
  • Superior pressure causes back pressure back flow.
  • Superior pressure can be caused by a pump, boiler System, or elevated storage tank located in a non-potable system.

Breaks in a water main or fire hydrant use are two examples that may cause a system to backflow. These are situations that can happen without notice and therefore require continuous prevention.

Prevention is Maintained Through:

  • Careful considerations of water supply connections.
  • A system of valves set up for protection. (the type of valve is determined by the hazard it protects).
  • Regular inspection/testing of backflow prevention valves.
