Sprinkler system backflow prevention devices allow water to go through in one direction: out to the lawn, but prevent it from going backward in the opposite direction: into your Raleigh or Durham home’s regular water supply. They are safety mechanisms to prevent contaminants in your irrigation water from entering your drinking water.
There are several types of sprinkler backflow preventers, including:
It’s extremely important to have a backflow prevention device on your irrigation system because the on and off valves included in sprinkler systems are not enough to prevent backflow. These valves can break or develop leaks, allowing potentially toxic contaminants from the irrigation water—such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides—to flow back into the water supply.
