What is Backflow Testing, Exactly?
For our purposes here, backflow is the undesired reverse flow of contaminants into the potable water from privately owned equipment connected to public water mains.
Say somebody has some industrial equipment hooked up to water and it requires chemicals to be mixed in. We don't really want that somehow coming back out into the mains and someone drinking it later. Usually it's a far more mundane risk, but the solution is always the same and backflow prevention system. These are usually simply called "backflows"
They need to be tested to ensure they work properly every year, because if they don't, it's effectively like it doesn't exist at all, which is dangerous to the public at large. Thus the mandatory testing and filing of paperwork with the city.
