Please give us a call if you require a new install or annual testing of backflow prevention devices.
What are Backflow Prevention Devices?
Backflow Prevention Devices prevent the reverse siphoning effect of polluted water into potable water supply. On properties that have irrigation or plumbing handling polluted liquid, such as mechanic oil change bays, golf courses, schools, hospitals or restaurants, Backflow Prevention Devices are required by the local council to eliminate the potential for accidental water poisoning.
As Backflow Prevention Devices use moving parts to detect siphoned water, they require annual testing and preventative maintenance to ensure they operate safely. These checks are required by law and require proof to be submitted to the local council. For more information on the risks associated with having a faulty or non-existent Backflow Prevention Device, visit your local council plumbing division on Backflow Prevention Devices.
