Backflow Prevention Services
Backflow prevention is the prevention of unwanted, reverse flow of water from a potentially polluted or contaminated source back into the clean drinking water supply. Backflow prevention starts by isolating a possible contamination source from the town mains or storage tanks (rainwater tanks) from the tap or appliance to ensure it does not escape into clean water supply.
Backflow occurs because a condition exists in a water supply system that will cause back-siphonage (back-pressure). Back-siphonage can occur on a property through a vacuum created in the water supply system. Examples of back-siphonage would be a pipeline breakage, undersized pipework or high withdrawal rates.
Examples of potential sources of contamination:
-Fire Hose Reels
-Vehicle maintenance pits
-Air conditioning towers
-Vehicle/bin washing bays
-Chemical injection areas
