Backflow is a hazardous situation in which the normal direction of water flow is reversed in your plumbing system. Since it can be inadvertently connected to a source of contamination, these contaminants could enter your water supply.
Backflow generally occurs when the pressure in the water mains is lower than the pressure in your plumbing system. This water will flow, in the absence of any backflow prevention device, from higher pressure to lower pressure and this is termed as backflow. Since it is a potential safety hazard, steps must be taken to ensure that backflow cannot occur.
