Types of Backflow:

  • Back-pressure – A reversal of water flow within a piping system results in an increase in the water used compared to water supplied.  The installation of a backflow prevention system effectively resolves the issue.
  • Back-siphonage – The reversal of water is the result of an increase in the velocity of water use.  Corroded pipes, leaking sewer connections, or crossed-over connections often redirects water flow back to other connections, causing major problems.
