What is a Backflow Prevention System?
The water used in your fire suppression system is non-potable—not safe to drink—and becomes a serious pollution concern if it leaks into your local supply of drinking water.
Backflow devices are installed in your sprinkler system and private fire hydrants to keep the water flowing in one direction only. This helps prevent the fire suppression system’s water from flowing backward into drinking water lines.
The water in your sprinkler system can have microorganisms, chemicals and heavy metals in it that would be that would be unhealthy for consumption, which is why backflow prevention systems are required.
Backflow can occur when the here’s a malfunction with your backflow preventer or—unfortunately too common—when the supply valve wasn’t turned back on after an inspection.
