Why Is Backflow Prevention Testing Important?

Backflow occurs when there is a change in the water pressure, causing the water to flow in the opposite direction in the main water supply lines. Incidents like burst or freezing pipes or a drop or an increase in water pressure can cause the water to flow backwards and lead to cross-contamination. Discoloured water and leaking pipes are common indicators of a problem with your backflow devices.

Regular backflow testing and maintenance is essential if you want to keep the water on your property safe from contamination. It is a legal requirement in Western Australia to have your backflow devices installed and tested annually.

Dirty water mixed with clean water can cause serious health problems if consumed.

Backflow prevention requires different combination valves tailored to the property needs. High-pressure water zones and commercial buildings have a higher risk of backflow than low-pressure zones.

Our qualified backflow technicians can classify the risk level of your property and install the correct backflow devices to protect it. We work under the existing industry standards and abide by the current legal regulations.
