A backflow device, also known as a Reduced Pressure Zone valve, is installed into your plumbing system to protect you.
When your plumbing is working correctly, it keeps clean drinking water separate from other water that has been flushed, drained, or comes in contact with chemicals or other contaminants. Your backflow prevention device is what keeps that water separated. As long as your backflow device is working, contaminated water will not automatically come out of your faucet or hose. When you include backflow testing in your annual system check-up, it guarantees that your system is up to code and is working properly.
You also have peace of mind that your water is free from contamination without having to worry about your plumbing.

This device prevents water from flowing “backward” into your clean water supply when water pressure is unequal or unstable. These devices should be installed by a professional to ensure they work properly and keep your water safe.
