What is a Backflow Prevention Device?

A backflow preventer device is a valve that prevents the reverse flow of potentially harmful polluted water entering, and contaminating, our drinking water (potable) supply.

How Does Backflow Occur?

Backflow is a plumbing hazard caused by contaminated water flowing back from the mains supply or from a wastewater system into the clean potable water supply in domestic or commercial premises.

Backflow can occur when a drop in water pressure, or a lower water pressure in the mains supply, causes a reversal in the direction of the polluted water flow back to your property. This reversal is known as back-siphonage and can be highly dangerous.

Backflow can occur when there is a sudden drop in water pressure in the mains supply, or when the water pressure in the mains supply is lower than the pressure in your property. This causes a reversal in the direction of the polluted water flow back to your property.

A common cause of backflow includes a cross-connections between the mains supply and non-potable water systems within your home, sudden changes in pressure or an interruption of supply in the water mains.

Backflow can cause damage to your home from polluted water, and may even harm your water supply. If you are concerned about the possibility of backflow in your home, contact our licensed plumbers for a full advice and inspection.

What Are My Backflow Prevention Responsibilities?

The Plumbing and Drainage Act 2018 states that as the property owner, it is your responsibility to register all installed testable backflow prevention devices with your local Council. 

Each year your backflow prevention device must be tested by an endorsed backflow plumber, with an annual fee per device to be paid to your Council.

What Properties Require Backflow Prevention Installation?

A backflow prevention device that requires testing, may be present on your property if you have any of the following:

  • An irrigation system
  • Fire hose reels or fire hydrants
  • Commercial or industrial equipment or activities that have the potential to contaminate the drinking water supply (such as chemical cleaning areas, air conditioning cooling towers etc)

  • Restaurants
