Though backflow & cross connection are closely linked, they are separate issues.
What Is Backflow?
Backflow is the unwanted reversal for the flow of undesirable water or other substances. This reversal can cause contaminants to end up in piping meant only for drinking, washing, or bathing. To prevent backflow, we recommend installing backflow prevention devices.
What Is A Cross-Connection?
A cross-connection occurs when pipes transporting treated and untreated substances connect. An Example of a cross connection could be when the public water system and a private water system connect. This connection poses the risk of contamination. To prevent contamination, a cross-connection control device is required.
We send professionals over to inspect your backflow & cross connection systems you already have in place. We ensure your drinking water is always safe, so you don’t have to.
