Backflow Testing and Prevention

Backflow Testing and Prevention

One of the many services we provide our residential, commercial and industrial clients here in the Hunter Valley region is backflow testing.

This service ensures that the water supply in our clients’ tanks is free of contaminants placed there by external water sources. On this webpage, allow us to explain our backflow testing and prevention services and show you why we are the best company to deal with these issues.

What is backflow?

Backflow quite literally refers to the unwanted flow of water in the direction opposite to what it should be. This can create many health and safety risks as it leads to contamination.

Building codes in Australia mandate that a series of measures must be taken to ensure that backflow does not exist in an inhabited building. We achieve this through the maintenance and implementation of backflow prevention devices and testing annually.

How We Prevent Backflow

When every property is under construction, building codes demand that proper backflow devices are put in place to ensure the quality and standard of the water being delivered to that facility are up to government standards.

What often happens with these devices is that they fail and result is a severe case of backflow which has obvious negative effects on a property and the quality of water being delivered to the inhabitants.

Here at John W Phillips Plumbing, our plumbing experts are trained and able to diagnose, treat and prevent issues that may arise regarding these backflow devices.

Our aim with this service is to ensure that each of our clients’ buildings more than meet government standards regarding backflow prevention.

One of the best ways to deal with any issue, particularly in plumbing, is to prevent it from happening in the first place.
