The backflow valve is used to prevent a reversal flow of water from occurring where water enters the fire suppression system from the water source. When backflow occurs, contaminants and debris can enter the system and cause blockages and other issues. A backflow valve is required by law to be tested by a certified tester annually to verify that it is in working order. If the minimum testing requirements are not met, the backflow valve must be repaired and retested.
