Commercial Backflow Prevention Services

Backflow is the unwanted backflow of water or other liquids into a potable water system. This can happen when there is a pressure difference between the potable water system and another system, such as a sewer line. If backflow occurs, it can contaminate the potable water supply, which can pose a serious health risk.

In most cases, commercial businesses are required to have a backflow prevention device installed. The specific requirements vary depending on the location of the business and the type of fluids that are used.

Why Is Commercial Backflow a Problem?

Commercial businesses are especially at risk of backflow contamination. This is because they often use a variety of chemicals and other fluids that can contaminate the water supply if they backflow. For example, restaurants use cleaning chemicals, laundromats use laundry detergent, and hospitals use medical fluids.

There are two main types of backflow prevention devices: reduced pressure principle (RPP) devices and double check valves (DCV). RPP devices work by reducing the pressure difference between the potable water system and another system. DCVs have two check valves that prevent backflow in both directions.
