Backflow occurs when water flows in the wrong direction through your supply pipes. As a result, the drinking and bathing water you use becomes contaminated with pollutants, which can lead to serious illness if not dealt with quickly.
To stop backflow from happening, you need an approved backflow prevention device, which is a special valve that stops the water in your pipes from running backward.
If your water pressure drops below the mains and the water in your pipes tries to travel backwards, the valve shuts off the water so it cannot become contaminated.
For certain businesses in WA, you are legally required to install a backflow prevention device. If you fail to comply with these standards, you can be heavily penalised.
Backflow devices should be tested annually by a licensed plumber who will complete and submit a report to the Water Corporation to confirm that your device complies with WA legislation.
With a backflow prevention device, you can rest assured that your home or businesses water supply is free from nasty contiminates and pollutants.
