Backflow Prevention, Testing and Certification

Safeguard your water supply with our expert Backflow Prevention, Testing, and Certification services!

Backflow issues can compromise the purity of your water, posing health risks and regulatory non-compliance. It is important to ensure your water system is secure and compliant with local regulations.

Our backflow service includes:

  • thorough inspection
  • reliable testing
  • official certification and registration with local council authorities
  • detection of any potential risks
  • prevention of contaminated water entering into your clean water supply.

We utilize the latest technology and testing kits to provide accurate assessments and solutions that protect your water from pollutants and chemicals.

The importance of backflow valves extends beyond their basic functionality; they are integral to preserving the health and safety of water systems by preventing the reverse flow of water.
This reverse flow, or backflow, poses a significant risk as it can introduce contaminants into clean water supplies, thereby compromising the safety of drinking water.
Although these devices are predominantly found in commercial settings due to their higher risk profiles, residential properties, particularly those with specific water usage patterns or additional water connections, might also require the installation of such protective measures.

To ensure the effectiveness and reliability of these devices the National Plumbing Code AS3500 along with local regulatory authorities mandate registration, of all testable devices, periodic inspections, testing and maintenance that property and business owners must adhere to. This is not merely a bureaucratic formality, it plays a critical role in the wider community’s water safety.
Annually, a certified backflow plumber must conduct tests on these devices, with the results documented and submitted to the respective council using a Form 9. This process ensures a systematic approach to monitoring and maintaining the integrity of the water supply system at the community level.

Our VIROPLUMB-licensed backflow plumber who is equipped with specialized testing kits designed for these purposes will ensure you meet all official and quality demands. In the event of malfunction or wear, our plumber can perform necessary repairs or replace the valve entirely using high-quality repair kits and replacement valves readily available for such circumstances.
In line with our commitment to quality and reliability, VIROPLUMB recommends the use of Valvcheq backflow prevention devices.
