The term backflow means any unwanted flow of used or non-potable water or substance from your home or business piping system into the pure, potable water distribution system. The natural flow of your plumbing is obvious. Clean filtered water comes in, and bad used water goes out. When there is a plumbing backflow problem the direction of flow is in reverse. There are numerous causes for backflow plumbing, however, the most common problem is due to a loss of water pressure in your plumbing system.
If your plumbing has a backflow problem there are a number of potentially hazardous problems that can arise. The worst of course being, the water that you use on a daily basis is now contaminated due to your plumbing backflow problem.
