BACK FLOW PREVENTION
Although many of us take tap water for granted, Sahuarita Water Company to great lengths to provide you with some of the safest drinking water in the nation.
Besides having state of the art water treatment facilities providing you with clean drinking water, our objective is to protect our water distribution system against the possibility of contamination from cross-connection with a non-potable source.
What is a Cross-Connection
A cross-connection is any connection between a private plumbing system and any source of water not fit for drinking purposes. An example of a cross-connection is an irrigation system that is connected to the plumbing system without a proper backflow prevention assembly. Otherwise, contaminated water from your irrigation system may flow back into your household plumbing if a major water pipe should break. Enforcement of Backflow Prevention
