Backflow Prevention Specialists
Backflow occurs when the normal direction of water flow is reversed due to the pressure of the water delivery main being lower than the internal plumbing system. Back Siphonage is also a form of Backflow which occurs due to a stoppage in water supply (often due to fire suppression) and reverses the normal flow of water in the system which in turn, pulls contaminants into drinking water. Consequences of Backflow can be potentially serious with the most significant being contaminated water. As a result, the Water Corporation requires all West Australian Commercial Buildings to undergo Backflow Testing every twelve months.
