Backflow Prevention for Kalispell, Whitefish, Columbia Falls, Bigfork or anywhere in the Flathead Valley
What Is Backflow?
Normally water flows forward from the city water supply system into your home. Backflow is the ‘backward flow’ back into the city water supply. If water flowing backwards contains hazardous chemicals, toxins or bacteria, this can cause a very unhealthy and even dangerous situation.
Your garden hose is the most common cause of backflow. For example, lets say you’re watering your garden with a pesticide applicator attached to the hose. Your kids want a snack, while you’re inside fixing the snacks there’s a drop in water pressure in the supply system that causes a vacuum . . . this will pull the pesticide laced water into your home.
Drops in water pressure are not uncommon, it may happen while a crew repairs a broken water main or firefighters put out a nearby fire.
