A backflow prevention valve prevents the accidental contamination of clean municipal water supplies with various unwanted materials. Irrigation systems for lawns and landscaping can introduce pesticides, fertilizer, and other materials into the water system, contaminating clean drinking water. Fertilizers and pesticides can also harm the environment. Pesticides can poison wildlife, and fertilizers cause a devastating environmental process called “eutrophication” in natural bodies of water. A backflow prevention valve, available from manufacturers like Apollo Valves, FEBCO, and prevents differences in pressure from causing dirty water to mix into clean public supplies. It also prevents backflow from boilers and fire sprinklers, which often have standing water full of sediment, minerals, and bacterial growth.
A backflow valve provides your plumbing with a line of protection when there’s a sudden change in pressure, which drives the direction in which water will flow. Burst water mains, flooding from wet weather, and even the usage of a nearby fire hydrant can all lead to sewer backflow.
