Private home water service connected to sewer line!

Whenever I get a customer who complains that backflow prevention isn’t needed, I like to pull out stories like this one.

Some of us on the inside of the backflow industry (those of us who don’t have a life and think this kind of stuff is cool) knew much of the details of the incident as they were unfolding a couple of years ago. We were just not able to talk about it.
