Most businesses and commercial properties are required by law to have plumbing backflow meters tested and certified every year. Backflow inspections are critical to ensuring that clean potable community water supplies don't become contaminated.
Backflow prevention devices do exactly what the name implies. They prevent water, sewage or contaminated substances from flowing backwards in the pipes and into fresh water supplies and causing a serious health risk. Such contamination usually occurs at cross connections in the plumbing system. A cross connection is any plumbing connection between pipes that carry drinking water and pipes that carry non-potable water. Good examples include steam pipes, boilers and irrigation systems. The backflow of sewage, gray water or other contaminated substances into fresh water supply pipes can cause a serious health risk.
