Backflow prevention device installation in kelowna, bc
Backflow prevention systems are devices installed on pipes that only allow water to flow in one direction. The purpose of backflow prevention devices is to protect water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow. They allow water from the city’s public water supply to flow into your home’s piping, but stops water if and when it ever tries to flow backwards into the main water supply.
The potential for backflow to occur exists wherever physical cross connections exist between potable and non-potable water sources. Water from a non-potable source that backflows into the potable system can cause contamination to the potable water supply.
