Occasional water pressure disorders can occur in the public water supply distribution system or within your own residence. These disorders can be caused by a sudden loss of pressure such as when a construction contractor breaks a service line or water main. Because of reduced pressure, the flow of the water in the system may be reversed. As a result, contaminants may flow backwards or be sucked into your plumbing system and the public water system through unprotected hoses or other possible cross connections.
