What is Backflow? How Does It Occur?
Backflow is the result of backpressure or backsiphonage, both of which can occur when the water pressure between your system and the city’s main water line experiences an imbalance.
In both cases, contaminated water can flow into the city’s potable water supply and result in water quality issues for your surrounding community.
This is why it’s so important to have a properly operating backflow prevention assembly in place (if your property is required to have one). Avoid causing greater harm and damage by making sure your system undergoes timely testing and repaired or replaced when necessary.

Is Your London, KY Home Required to Have Backflow Prevention Installed?
Commercial buildings and multi-family residential properties are required to have backflow prevention assemblies in place. These types of properties feature fire suppression systems, commercial boiler systems, and other equipment that have the potential to cause cross-connections with the municipal water line.
Single-family homes are also required to install backflow prevention assemblies if there are lawn sprinklers or other irrigation systems on the property. If you use an outdoor faucet to water your lawn, you may also need to set up a backflow prevention system, particularly if your property is older.
