What is the potential hazard?
If a backflow device is not properly installed or isn’t working properly and there is a loss of water pressure, anything that is in the pipes or pooled around a sprinkler head can be siphoned back into the water supply. Contaminants, bacteria and/or lawn chemicals, can be drawn into the water supply lines to the house or even to neighboring houses.
