What is Backflow?

Backflow is when potent, harmful water enters a communities drinkable water supply. 

Under normal conditions, positive pressure forces potable (drinkable) water through piping into non-potable water. Backflow occurs when this normal flow of water within a pipeline is reversed. This can occur in two different ways, referred to as backpressure and back-siphonage, detailed below.

What is Backflow Testing?

Backflow testing is the process that is conducted to test plumbing systems in order to identify contaminated water supplies. Longbeach plumbing conducts backflow testing to ensure the communities water is safe to drink, protecting households drinking water assets.
