Backflow is the undesirable reversal of the flow of water or mixture of
water and other liquids, gases or
other substances into the distribution pipes of the potable water supply from another source.
There are two factors that can cause backflow:
Backsiphonage - Occurs when there is a negative or sub-atmospheric pressure in the supply piping, allowing downstream substances to be drawn into the potable water supply. Under-sized pipes, pipeline breaks and high withdrawal rates can create vacuums, which contribute to the occurrence of backsiphonage.
Backpressure - Occurs when a pressure higher than the supply is created in the piping, allowing downstream substances to be pushed into the potable water supply. Backpressure can occur when higher pressures downstream are generated by pumps, thermal expansion and elevation.
Zurn is a trusted leader in backflow prevention. Their innovative and cost-effective designs are easy to repair and provide the lowest life cycle costs of any other backflow assembly on the market.
Zurn is recognising the importance of backflow prevention and
the critical role it plays in keeping Australian communities safe, by protecting our water supplies.
