What Is Backflow & What Causes It?

Backflow refers to water from a contaminated source flowing in the wrong direction back into a clean water supply. The primary cause of backflow is sudden changes in water pressure within a plumbing system. This can be due to a line break or industrial processes that significantly reduce water pressure. 

Cross-connected lines—points where lines carrying potable and contaminated water intersect—are especially susceptible to backflow. Many commercial properties in Louisiana are required to identify and address potential backflow hazards, such as cross-connections. Additionally, those with auxiliary water supplies generally must do the same. 

Why Is Backflow Dangerous?

Backflow can introduce harmful chemicals, bacteria, and other contaminants into a clean water supply. If someone consumes or comes in contact with the contaminated water, they could become very sick and experience other health problems. The risks that backflow poses make it important for residential and commercial property owners to take measures to protect their water supply.
