Backflow Prevention

Ensuring Clean, Safe Water for Everyone

Our mission is to help protect your home or business from the potential hazards of backflow, maintaining the safety and quality of your water supply

Understanding Backflow

Backflow occurs when the direction of water flow in your plumbing system reverses, which can lead to contaminated water entering your property’s water supply. This can happen due to a sudden change in water pressure, known as back pressure or back siphonage.

Backflow can introduce pollutants or contaminants such as pesticides, fertilizers, human waste, and more into your potable water. Hence, it’s crucial to prevent backflow to ensure the safety of your drinking water.

The Role of Backflow Prevention Devices

A backflow prevention device is designed to block contaminated water from flowing back into your clean water supply. They are typically installed in strategic areas within your plumbing system. Regular testing and maintenance of these devices are essential to ensure they function correctly and comply with local health and safety regulations and are heavily monitored by Sydney Water. You will receive a testing notice via mail or email advising that your valve or valves are due for testing by an accredited plumber.
