Milk in your Backflow Protector?

Do you notice milk or condensation in your backflow protectors after pumping? Did you know that there’s actually nothing to worry about when this happens? Your backflow protector is working exactly as it should by preventing milk and moisture from entering the tubing. If you’re consistently finding milk in your backflow protectors after you pump, it simply means you have a strong letdown – and that’s a good thing!


What can I do if there’s milk in my backflow protector?

That’s easy. Just pop it apart and wash it like you normally would with your other pumping kit accessories. Remember to make sure your backflow protector has enough time to completely air dry prior to assembling it again.
