RPZ Backflow DeviceWhat is Backflow?

Many irrigation systems create a cross-connection between a potable drinkable water system and non-potable, non-drinkable water system. An irrigation system can create a situation where non-drinkable water could backflow into a drinkable water system.

All the plumbing fixtures in your home or business present the same problem and are designed to prevent non-drinkable water from a sink, shower, or toilet from flowing backwards into your plumbing system.

You’ll notice that the faucet in your sink can never come in contact with the water in the sink because the discharge point of the faucet is above the top of the sink. The water in the sink will overflow the sink basin before it could reach the discharge point of the faucet. The air gap between the faucet and the sink basin prevents any chance of water in the sink backflowing into the plumbing system in your home or business.

A backflow device is installed on your irrigation system. This device prevents a cross-connection from occurring between the potable drinkable water system at your home or office. There are a variety of devices used to prevent the water in your irrigation system from coming in contact with your drinkable water. All of these devices must be approved by the Ohio Department of Commerce.

Annual Testing Required

After an approved backflow prevention device has been installed and tested, it must be re-tested annually by individuals who have been certified by an approved testing school.

To become a certified backflow tester an individual must attend an approved certification training program that  has combined total of 24 hours of training in the classroom and the hands-on test lab.

This assures you that the water in your home or business is safe.
