We offer installations servicing and routine testing of all types of back flow prevention devices. The Power and Water corporation advise that backflow is "The undesirable reverse flow of water from a potentially polluted or contaminated source to the PWC potable water supply system. Backflow may occur under backpressure, back siphonage or a combination of both. The reason that backflow prevention is important is because backflow events in Australia and overseas have resulted in serious cases of poisoning and several fatalities." Therefore all properties with a water connection that present a high or medium hazard, see examples below, shall have the appropriate backflow prevention device installed at the property boundary. High Risk examples - Petroleum products processing and storage facilities, Public effluent discharge points including motor-home dump points. Medium Risk examples - Premises with grey water reuse systems, Caravan parks. More examples and Power and water corporations full manual on backflow prevention can be found -
