Backflow occurs when the normal flow of water is disrupted, leading to a reversal of its direction. This reversal can happen due to changes in water pressure, creating a potential pathway for contaminants to enter the clean water supply. 

This contamination can range from pollutants in irrigation systems to harmful bacteria in sewer lines. The consequences of contaminated water can be severe, impacting not only the health of those within your home but also posing risks to the broader community.
