We will be replacing a customer’s backflow this week so I thought I would refresh everyone’s memory about backflows. A backflow device on your irrigation system is the key to preventing contamination. There are all sorts of things that are in your lawn that can make you sick or worse if they get into your drinking water. This means that irrigation water itself is considered a contaminant and can create a health hazard. Fertilizers, pesticides and animal waste can and will come back up your irrigation pipes into your drinking water unless you have a device in place (backflow) to stop them.They can also get into your well and into everyone else’s drinking water. Stay tuned…more tomorrow on the types of backflow devices available. #backflowdeviceforirrigationsytems
