Backflow prevention device FAQs

<span>01</span> What is the purpose of a backflow prevention device?
A backflow prevention device ensures water only flows in one direction, preventing contaminants from entering the main water supply. This is most likely to happen with a drop in pressure in the main or if the water pressure on site is higher than the mains source. Contamination risks include chemicals, oils, bacteria and other detritus, all of which present serious health risks.

Minimising the risk associated with backflow is the property owner’s responsibility, but we’re accredited to assist you and ensure you’re meeting your obligations.

Bear Plumbing specialises in installing, testing, and maintaining these devices for commercial properties.

<span>03</span> How often should backflow prevention devices be tested, and why is it crucial?
Australian Standards recommend a licensed commercial plumbing company tests backflow prevention devices annually. Regular testing is crucial to ensure the devices function correctly and prevent contamination of the water supply.
