Backflow Testing Ipswich, Brisbane

Backflow prevention and backflow testing is essential for every home and commercial building.

Why are backflow prevention devices needed?

Many countries have made the installation of backflow prevention devices and backflow testing compulsory. An absence of such devices may lead to the supply of a number of contaminants and pollutants creating health problems with serious consequences. Keeping the importance of such devices in mind, plumbing companies must be accredited in order to test and certify backflow valves. This accreditation is needed so strict testing procedures are followed to control pollutants or contaminants as far as water supply is concerned. Water can collect contaminants from the ground. When back pressure or back siphonage occurs in a plumbing system, water supply pipes can start collecting these pollutants. This is the reason why such devices are installed in most of the homes and offices.

After all, who wants to drink and use dirty and polluted water? This leads to the increasing success and demand of backflow prevention devices. In industrial areas, the needs are higher as the amount of pollutants or chemicals is much more than in normal areas. Local authorities take the main responsibility that contaminated water should not be supplied to the homes and offices. At the same time, the Government themselves have restricted the law so that the installation of backflow valves become essential. People can complain to the authority if no such system is installed.
