Backflow can occur when the water from your property flows backwards. Or, where there is a pressure difference in a water supply, water may travel back into the mains, resulting in contaminated water drawn back to your household.
That’s why installing backflow prevention devices are important. But getting backflow testing Sydney performed yearly is an absolute must for every household and business establishment. Also, getting a yearly backflow prevention device tested is necessary.
A plumbing emergency like backflow occurs when water flowing through your property goes back into your pipes. In the event of a backflow, contaminated water can be delivered to your home, rendering it unfit for use and consumption. In this case, you need to talk to your plumber about backflow prevention devices or schedule an annual backflow test.
There can be severe consequences associated with contaminated water. While backflow prevention is imperative to prevent unwanted contaminants from entering our water supply, periodic backflow testing is equally important. Backflow testing ensures your water service is good and your device is working to protect the drinking water in your area.
Failure to comply with Sydney backflow prevention and testing may result in legal consequences for some commercial properties.
You must immediately report to the Sydney water authority or relevant water authority or contact a respected plumbing company when the water from your property flows backwards to check the lines and your backflow prevention devices.
Our backflow plumbers recommend hiring a professional to perform annual backflow prevention and testing to ensure your drinking water and backflow device installation are of the highest quality. Otherwise, it can cause permanent damage to your water supply system, pipes and faucets if left unattended for long. Or worse, it can jeopardise your and your family’s health.
Serious plumbing issues like water system backflow can occur for various reasons. For instance, there can be a break in the main water supply or a general problem with your pipes. If your backflow preventer is damaged, this can also cause backflow.
If your pipes are problematic, there’s a chance that the entire line will be contaminated, contaminating your drinking water. This can endanger your and your family’s health, leading to diseases like skin irritation, bowel movement problems, etc.
Backflow can also happen due to a pressure difference. For instance, if the water pressure in your property is higher than the mains system or the main’s pressure drops. This can introduce contaminants like chemicals, oil, or bacteria into the public freshwater system, affecting the water supply and causing residents to get sick or spread disease.
Over time, the back flowing might cause the water to turn muddy and develop a foul odour. Hence, you shouldn’t delay fixing your separate backflow device if you’ve got it installed at any cost.
Trust our emergency plumber to fix your backflow problem and install a backflow prevention containment device. Backflow risk can be low, medium or high. But this plumbing project can’t be a DIY for you. Thousands of households go through this problem yearly, which can generally be resolved without much effort. But if you let the problem persist, your tap water might not remain drinkable anymore. And this problem might eventually contaminate the entire water supply.
