What Is a Backflow Preventer?

The Sarasota Utilities Department continues to work toward keeping the available drinking water safe by initiating a backflow prevention program. These systems are designed to help prevent contaminated water from being allowed to flow back into the water mains. Part of this process is installing a backflow prevention device everywhere with a service connection; it is the responsibility of the property owner to install these devices and test them on an annual basis.

What Causes Backflow?

Back siphonage of contaminated water can occur when the water system’s pressure is higher than the pressure in a tank or water trough. Although water distribution systems are designed to keep water flowing directly from the distribution center to the consumer, deviations in the system’s hydraulics can result in water flowing in the opposite direction. When systems are not protected with backflow preventers, this can cause contaminated water to flow back into the main water supply, which can threaten health and safety.
