A backflow prevention device is used to prevent the reverse flow of water from a potentially polluted source into a potable water supply system. Under government legislation, these valves require annual testing by a certified tradesperson.

The local government/council maintains a register of all backflow devices And as a specialist certified technicians, we provide full testing and certification reports in line with the Government maintenance policy and delivery within their recommended time frames.

Backflow prevention is assessed as a low, medium or high hazard device dependent on the hazard it is exposed to.
These are generally non testable devices which could be a backstop, vacuum breaker or dual check valves. They are installed in areas that present a low risk of being contaminated. These devices are generally a sealed unit and cannot be serviced and in the event they fail, are replaced.
EXAMPLES: Water filters, coffee machines, dishwasher hose taps in a domestic situation.
These valves will consist of a testable double check valve (DCV), which are installed in areas that present a medium risk of the backflow cresting minor illness in the event of potable water supply is contaminated by the hazard. These valves must be serviced and tested annually.
EXAMPLES: Fire hose reels, irrigation systems.
These valves will consist of a Reduced pressure Zone Device (RPZD), that are installed in high risk areas where if backflow occurs, serious illness will occur. These valves are also required to be serviced and tested annually.
EXAMPLES: Chemical injection systems, wash down hose taps in bin areas or adjacent to a grease trap or sewer manhole.
