Working closely with local councils and water-boards, Hughes Plumbing Contractors tests many valves between the Gold Coast, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast to protect our precious drinking water supply.

WHAT IS BACKFLOW?

Back-flow is a term in Plumbing for an unwanted flow of water in the reverse direction. It can be a serious health risk for the contamination of potable water supplies with hazardous water or chemicals.

HOW DOES BACKFLOW OCCUR OCCUR?

Backflow occurs because a condition exists in a water supply system that will cause back-siphonage or back-pressure. Back-siphonage can occur on a property through a vacuum created in the water supply system. An example of back-siphonage would be a pipeline breakage, undersized pipework or high withdrawal rates. Back-pressure can occur within properties when high pressure is generated downstream by pumps, thermal expansion or elevation.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?

Backflow is a serious issue. However, when proper backflow testing and maintenance methods are employed, you can prevent problems in your plumbing systems before they begin. Hughes Plumbing Contractors offers affordable backflow services to assess your risk level and test your devices. If you’ve never had a risk assessment before or are unsure whether you need to test your backflow devices, we suggest that you contact us as soon as possible.

ALL BACKFLOW DEVICES MUST BE TESTED ANNUALLY

The Plumbing and Drainage Act 2018 requires all owners of testable installed backflow prevention devices to register their device with local government and to have the device tested or inspected annually by a plumber endorsed for backflow testing. Hughes Plumbing Contractors is endorsed by the relevant local councils and will continue to work closely alongside them.
