How Does Backflow Prevention Work?
There are a few ways in which backflow prevention measures may be implemented. In its simplest form, an air gap is enough to offer some protection from backflow issues. This is simply an open space in a piping system which prevents water from backing up into the residential plumbing system. However, for more advanced protection, an automated backflow prevention device is advisable.
Such devices will automatically detect pressure drops and backflow as such issues develop. When they do, the device springs into action, preventing that backflow from making its way into your home. A number of different devices may be used, such as double check valves, pressure vacuum breaker assemblies, reduced pressure zone devices, and more.
