What is Backflow?

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.
