Need Backflow Prevention in Washington DC or Maryland for Your Lawn Irrigation System?
In water supply systems, there is usually a constant pressure to enable
water to flow from your plumbing outlet, such as your shower, faucet,
or hose. When that pressure fails or is reduced due to water main bursts,
frozen pipes or an unexpectedly high demand for water, contaminated water
from the ground can "backflow" into the system.
To prevent this from happening, it is required by law that you have a backflow
prevention device installed if you have a lawn irrigation system. These
devices prevent contamination of your water system from such things as
pesticides, feces, fertilizers and other dangerous materials.There are
over 10,000 reported cases of backflow contamination each year, and some
It is not required that companies installing lawn irrigation systems include
this backflow prevention device. Therefore, if you rely on city water
and have a lawn irrigation system, you and your family may be at risk.
