What is a Backflow Prevention Assembly?

Backflow prevention assemblies are safeguards to protect our potable water supply, and the approved backflow apparatus must be selected, tested and periodically maintenanced to ensure optimal protection performance where cross connections exist. 

Why do I need a Backflow Prevention Assembly?

When any temporary or permanent connection between a drinkable and a non-drinkable supply exists, an air gap or a backflow prevention assembly is needed to prevent water contamination and/or pollution. The best method of backflow prevention is the use of an air gap. When an air gap cannot be utilized, a backflow prevention assembly must be installed.

What kind of Backflow Assembly do I need?

Selecting a backflow assembly encompasses knowing the local building codes and regulations and having a professional determine the level of hazard associated with the cross connection. Commercial building exceeding five stories in height require the installation of a Reduced Pressure Principle Assembly (RPZ).
