When it comes to backflow testing on your water and irrigation systems the city of Bend Oregon has some very specific requirements as to what assemblies can be used and when testing must be done.
The issue of backflow is important and ensures that no contaminates enter the municipal drinking water system which is vital to any community.
Essentially backflow is the undesirable flow of non-potable water or other contaminates through a cross connection and into the public water system or consumer’s potable water system.
For example, without backflow protection, attaching a chemical sprayer to a garden hose for fertilizing your yard or for use with herbicides and insecticides can create a cross connection with potential health hazards to the public water supply .
One of the causes of backflow can come from an unexpected drop in water pressure allowing water from a contaminated source to flow back into the municipal water system.
