It’s integral to maintain a safe, clean water supply, especially in areas like Bonham, TX, where agricultural and industrial activities can pose additional risks to water quality.

Common Backflow Issues That Could Affect Your Property

  • Pressure Changes in Water Supply: Sudden changes in water pressure can cause backflow, allowing contaminated water to flow into the clean water supply.
  • Garden Hose Siphoning: If a hose is left in a contaminated source (like a swimming pool or chemical solution), it can siphon the contamination back into the home’s water system.
  • Cross-Connections Between Drinking Water and Non-Potable Water: Improper connections can allow non-potable water to contaminate the drinking water system.
  • Failed Backflow Preventers: Devices designed to prevent backflow can fail due to wear and tear, incorrect installation, or lack of maintenance.
  • Irrigation Systems: Lawn sprinkler and irrigation systems can cause backflow if they are not correctly separated from the home’s main water supply.
  • Industrial Backwash: Facilities that use large amounts of chemicals and produce waste can cause backflow into the municipal water system if improperly contained.
  • Pipe Leaks and Breaks: Damage to the water supply infrastructure can lead to contamination entering through leaks or breaks near contamination sources.

Backflow Testing FAQs

Backflow is a term used to describe the undesirable reversal of water flow in a plumbing system, causing contaminated or non-potable water to siphon back into the clean water supply. This can occur due to changes in water pressure and presents a significant health risk by potentially introducing bacteria, chemicals, and other hazardous substances into drinking water.

Cross-connection is any point in a plumbing system where the drinking water supply is connected to a non-potable water source. This connection can pose a significant risk to water quality, potentially allowing contaminants to enter the drinking water system through backflow.

Backflow can be effectively prevented by installing specialized backflow prevention assemblies. These devices are designed to allow water to flow in one direction but close off when reverse flow is detected, thereby preventing contamination of the clean water supply.
