Back flow occurs when water flows opposite to its normal or intended direction.  Installing a back flow prevention device/valve, ensures that water from a property cannot be drawn back into the main drinking supply, preventing potential pollutants from causing contamination.

Valves need to be tested and serviced every 12 months.
