In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower etc. When pressure fails or is reduced, as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system. When this occurs, the pressure in the pipe may be reduced and then may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage, or from other sources to be drawn into the water system.
Back pressure within your water supply is another way that an undesirable contaminant may enter your potable water piping. This can be stopped with the use of a Back-flow Valve. Sources of back pressure may be: pumps in the water distribution system, boilers or heat exchanging equipment, and even power washing equipment. In these cases you may have an almost constant risk of overcoming the static water pressure in the piping and, especially when chemicals are used, you would benefit greatly from having a Backflow Preventer. Backflow preventers are the key to keeping your back flow from becoming a major problem.
The use of chemicals are often used for commercial and industrial descaling (boilers) or with residential applications such as in deck/siding cleaning and power washing, using bleach. All of these can contaminate your water supply.
