Backflow is a plumbing problem wherein there is a reversal of the water’s flow in the plumbing system. Instead of water flowing forwards, pressure changes and other issues can trigger water flows in the opposite direction of where it should be moving. This can force contaminated, non-potable water into the source of drinking water, leaving it unsafe for use.
