Backflow is defined as the reverse flow of a liquid into the potable water supply. The installation of a backflow preventer protects the water supply from contamination from this very serious condition.
All major plumbing code bodies address protection against backflow. All potential or existing cross connections must be protected from backflow by the installation of a proper backflow prevention device. Consult your national and local plumbing code authorities for more specific information on your code requirements.
Backpressure: pressure, higher than the supply pressure, caused by a pump, elevated tank, boiler, or any other means that may cause backflow.
Backsiphonage: backflow caused by negative or reduce pressure in the supply piping.
Cross-Connection: a connection or a potential connection between any part of the potable water system and other environment containing substances in a manner that under any circumstances would allow such a substance to enter the potable water system. Other substances may be gases, liquids, or solids, such as chemicals, waste products, steam, water from other sources (potable or non-potable) or any other matter that may change the color or add odor to the water. Bypass arrangements, jumper connections, removable sections, swivel or changeover assemblies, or any other temporary or permanent connecting arrangement through which backflow may occur are considered to be cross connections.
Health Hazard: a cross-connection or potential cross-connection involving any substance that could, if introduced into the potable water supply, cause death, illness, or spread disease, or have a high probability of causing such effects.
Non-Health Hazard: a cross-connection or potential cross-connection involving any substance that generally would not be a health hazard but constitutes a nuisance or would be aesthetically objectionable, if introduced into the potable water supply.
