Backflow testing, Installation, servicing.

A backflow prevention device is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow.

In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower etc. When pressure fails or is reduced, as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, then such reduced pressure in the pipe may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn up into the system.

Backflow Prevention Devices are extremely important in protecting potable water supplies from contamination.   There are various applications where backflow prevention devices are required, inquire for more information and details to see if you require valves to be installed.

MWPlumbing are licenced to supply and install Backflow Prevention Devices throughout both commercial and residential settings.   All devices installed require initial and annual testing and reporting.  All reports are submitted to ACTPLA or your local council.
