Backflow Prevention Testing Plumber in Brisbane
In general, backflow prevention devices and thermostatic mixing valves connect to water tanks, fire hose reels, or irrigation systems. As with all devices, they need to be regularly tested, maintained, repaired, or replaced, to ensure that no contaminated backflow reaches the public water supply.
AC Plumbing hires only the best-qualified plumbers, certified to work on backflow prevention devices and thermostatic mixing valves. We make sure that your property is in full compliance with the Brisbane City Council regulations.
What is a Backflow Prevention Device?
The device acts as a backflow preventer that stops the reverse flow of polluted or contaminated water back into the city’s drinking water supply. Backflow usually occurs when water pressure in the water supply mains is lower than that in the pipes in your home.
As a result of the difference in water pressures, a vacuum may form in the water main, causing a reverse flow of water to the water main. If the water supply on your property has pollutants and contaminants, it could lead to dangerous consequences, as they are introduced back into the city’s water supply.
How Often Do Backflow Prevention Devices Need Testing?
If you live in the Brisbane area, you are probably aware that Brisbane City Council requires annual testing of backflow prevention devices, to ensure the safety of drinking water consumed by the residents in the area. Every year, residents must complete backflow water testing on their homes and provide the proof by December 31st.
Bear in mind that this is a minimum legal requirement in the Brisbane area. If your plumbing and backflow prevention device has seen better days, you should investigate replacing parts or the whole system in the future, or do inspections and testing regularly. It will help you avoid a potentially catastrophic failure of the device in the future.
Make sure that your drinking water is safe and your home complies with the backflow prevention testing regulations of the Brisbane City Council. By contacting AC Plumbing, you will entrust these tasks to a team of certified experts with experience serving the Brisbane community.
