What is Backflow Testing, And Do I Need it?
Most people have either never heard of “backflow testing,” or they have heard the term but do not know what it is. Well, backflow testing is something that you need to know about in order to make sure that the water you and your family are drinking is safe and clean.
Backflow testing is a process that is used to test the plumbing system in your home to make sure that drinking water is not being contaminated by dirty water infiltrating your water supply. Therefore, “backflow” is the reverse flow of non-potable water, or other substances, through a cross-connection and into your potable water system. One of the most common causes of backflow is an unusually high demand on the water supply. With COVID-19 quarantining millions of people inside their homes during this time, many home water systems are finding that they are under heavy strain. With an unusually high demand on the water supply, now is the perfect time for backflow testing.
It is recommended that homes undergo backflow testing annually to prevent contaminated water from entering your drinking and bathing water supply. However, since many people are unaware of backflow testing, this is rarely done. It is important to consider backflow testing as a regular maintenance routine to keep the water that you and your family consume safe and clean. If you have never had a backflow test, now is a perfect time. **If you ever notice that your water is discolored or dirty, it is imperative that you schedule a backflow test immediately.
