Backflow Prevention in Cornelius – Backflow prevention is the suite of techniques and devices that exist to prevent backflow in a number of different situations. Different situations require different levels of redundancy and protection, the highest being when dealing with things that pose a serious health risk to humans. Since human waste is one of the materials most likely to pose such a serious health risk, backflow prevention is especially important in residential and commercial sewer applications. These devices are often required by law or local building code, so the installation, maintenance, and replacement of these are a contribution not only to your health, but also the health of those around you.
Backwater sanitary valves are the exact same device as backflow preventers. As these have no connection with potable water, they are intended to prevent backflow during a flood or sewer blockage. Other methods exist, including the use of an air gap. Taps above washbasins, some types of cisterns, and some types of hand-held showers are all examples of air gaps that act as backflow prevention devices.
