What Causes Backflow
Backflow happens when water flows in the opposite direction than intended. Whenever your water supply flow reverses back to the main water line, it may contaminate your water, potentially leading to serious health complications. Some of the most common causes of backflow include:
- Burst pipes
- Sewer line damage
- Boiler damage
- Defective backflow water valve
