That’s fine if the water is clean, but if it is in a tank with chemicals, for instance, the backflow would be a toxic disaster for anyone that comes in contact with the contaminated water.

There are several types of backflow preventers.

The basic models look like an L sticking up out of the earth, ones mandated for new sprinkler systems for example. Other backflow preventers use an air gap and a release valve to control any backflow of polluted waters. The polluted water spills out on the ground before it can come near the water main.

The strongest ones have two air gaps and several valves to make contamination impossible, as long as everything is working properly.
