BTC Plumbing is licenced to carry out annual Backflow testing requirements, repairs and maintenance.
Local Council's around Australia are committed to ensuring that drinking water supply remains safe and free of contamination.
Backflow is the reverse flow of water from a property back into the drinking water supply, which has the potential to cause health hazards to the water supply. There may be any number of contamination sources within a property. Backflow prevention provides a barrier, keeping contaminated water separate from the drinking water supply.
These devices have to be tested annually by a licensed tradesman.
Examples of potential sources of contamination include:
- fire hose reels (FHR)
- irrigation systems
- swimming pools
- vehicle maintenance pits
- ornamental ponds
- air conditioning towers
- vehicle/bin washing bays
- chemical injection areas
- commercial and manufacturing processes.
