If you utilise potable water supplies on your property, you may need to ensure that a backflow prevention device is fitted somewhere in the line. Our expert plumbers can provide a professional backflow testing service to ensure that your system is fully protected against contamination or pollution due to backflow.
In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower or any other outlet. Problems can occur if the pressure fails or is reduced, as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze, or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system. Then, such reduced pressure in the pipe may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn back up into your system.
Backflow prevention devices are extremely important in protecting potable water supplies from contamination. There are various applications where backflow prevention devices are required. Contact one of our team for more information and details on whether valves need to be installed in your system.
Here at Priority One Plumbing Services, we are licensed to supply and install backflow prevention devices for both commercial and residential systems. All of the devices installed require initial and annual testing and reporting, and all reports are submitted to ACTPLA or your local council.
