Backflow Prevention: Your Responsibility And What To Do To Comply - A Letter From Pennsylvania American Water

Strict water quality standards are totally understandable, because everyone wants pure, sparkling, crystal-clear and bacteria and contaminant-free water coming from their taps. But clear, pure water does not happen accidentally, and that's something we all need to remember and never take for granted. Pennsylvania American Water and all of these local water companies work very hard every single day to meet or exceed all federal, local and Pennsylvania standards and regulations. Backflow preventers are purity guardians, devices that are always on the alert to help our water companies keep their water supply pure and free of any contaminants.

That's why Pennsylvania American Water and other water companies send letters like these (click here for samples of letters sent by Aqua Pennsylvania giving notice of the required annual backflow inspection and certification, plus their 10 Day Shut-Off Notice). In the event any individual customer's backflow preventer was to malfunction or fail, it could contaminate the water supply not only for that home or business, but also for hundreds or even thousands of other customers of the water company.

Backflow Preventers protect the water company's supply of water by preventing contaminated water from homes or businesses from accidently seeping back into the supply of fresh water; or perhaps from cross-contamination of your own pipes or hoses.

Every business and home that is equipped with Backflow Preventer safety devices must maintain them to ensure they are in proper working order. Every year your backflow preventer must be inspected for any defects by an Authorized Tester or Certified Technician such as myself, Greg Ribick, "Mr. Backflow." Testing is also required for new installations or when any repairs are made to the backflow prevention device.
