Backflow Prevention Devices in all properties and commercial premises connected to Sydney’s Water system are a legal requirement.
Backflow generally results from a drop in water pressure. This creates negative pressure in the water system allowing contaminated water to flow back from the ground or other sources and mix with clean drinking water. This can happen in places such as your toilet, basins, sinks and even swimming pool.
Contaminated water as a result from Backflow can cause serious illness.
We offer inspections and annual testing of Backflow prevention devices such as RPZD (Reduced pressure zone device), and where necessary we will either service/repair or install a new device. In order to test Backflow devices specific tools and training are required. Only certified plumbers with Backflow prevention accreditation issued by a registered training organisation are allowed to work on these devices. We are fully qualified to work on Backflow prevention devices such as RPZD’s so you are guaranteed a thorough and professional service every time.
Once Backflow prevention devices have been installed or tested, accredited plumbers must then submit results and certify by means of the online Sydney Water web lodgement system.
Get in touch and ensure that your Backflow prevention device is protecting you.
