What Is a Backflow Prevention Device?
A backflow prevention device is a mechanical valve that prevents water from flowing backward through your plumbing system. Once water passes through your water meter and into your property, local water authorities cannot guarantee that water remains safe and clean, and thus the majority of buildings are required to have some sort of a backflow prevention device to prevent the flow of water back through your meter and into the public supply. There are several different ways this is accomplished, and different buildings have different needs based on their water consumption, the size of their main water line, and the building’s purpose.
