Why Backflow Prevention is Needed

In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, sink, shower etc. When pressure falls, fails or if it is reduced, as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, then such reduced pressure in the pipe may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn up into the water system.
