Placing a hose directly into a container where the chemicals and water can mix may be all it takes to inadvertently introduce harmful chemicals into your drinking water. How?
Faulty Plumbing Connection: The chemicals in the tank can enter the outlet end of the submerged water hose and potentially contaminate the water system.
Once the toxic solution enters the plumbing or public water line it can be potentially consumed or used by unsuspecting people.
Pipeline Break: When a pipe break or opening occurs, there is a loss of water pressure in the pipe distribution system. As a result of loss of pressure, a backflow event may occur when the non-potable water is back-siphoned into the pipe distribution system.
