Water waste can contaminate the clean water supply in the situation of backpressure. What it is? Well, the situation of backpressure occurs when the downstream pressure is greater than the pressure of supply and hence, it contaminates the downstream water that force back to the clean water and make it polluted.
Such cross-connection occurs in the situation of the drop in water pressure. In case if your water connection breaks or fire hydrants get affected, the water drops and it creates a vacuum. The vacuum will suck contaminants into the pipe. There are high chances of cross-connection if you have older tubs or sinks in the place. Diluted water from toilets and swimming pools can contaminate the washing machine and dishwashers.
Mould generated from unfixed leaks
Mould growth can take a dangerous form. It grows in basements, kitchens, clogged gutters, roofs, bathrooms, and other many areas where there are chances of leaks.
