Backflow Prevention

What is Backflow?

Backflow occurs when water flows opposite to its normal or intended direction and can occur when water pressure to a property is not maintained. Backflow can result in a public health risk if it allows pollutants or contaminations such as chemicals to enter the drinking water supply.


How is Backflow prevented?

Installing a backflow prevention device ensures that water from a property cannot be drawn back into the main drinking water supply. There are a number of different backflow prevention devices available. The type of device required will depend on the risk rating of the property with the potential hazard.
