Backflow conditions can potentially occur when water reverses direction under certain hydraulic conditions or cross connection of plumbing piping and equipment. The result can adversely affect drinking water supply, possibly creating a potential health hazard in homes, businesses, and public spaces.
A properly functioning backflow device is your first line of defense against possible threats to your water quality. The Oregon Health Authority and the Washington Department of Health require annual testing of these devices by licensed
and certified technicians.
