Did you know that tomorrow is National Backflow Prevention Day? Tim & John talk backflow prevention with Watts' Gary Parker Jr. Gary joined Watts in 2018 with more than 15 years of general contracting and wholesale experience in the plumbing mechanical and construction industries.

National Backflow Prevention Day day commemorates the tragic backflow incident on the same day which occurred at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair.

The plumbing industry has rallied around this day to assist in recognizing and honoring backflow preventers—the professionals who ensure our available water supply is free of toxins, waste and harmful chemicals. The holiday aims to spread awareness about the importance of backflow prevention and how the technology is used.
