Backflow Prevention Services

When it comes to water flowing throughout your home or office, there’s only one way it should go. However, sometimes the flow is reversed, which is caused by internal pipe debris. This is called backflow.

What is backflow testing?

Backflow testing is a plumbing term that refers to when contaminated and polluted water source flows in the reverse direction towards a clean water system, such as those used for bathing and drinking purposes.

The backflow of water stems from cross-connection. This means that dirty contaminated water could pollute the clean water supply at any point. The contamination could be from a secondary pipe, connected water supply that has inlets submerged and by-passed with each other. It might also be your temporary water devices and removable parts that could become the root of the problem of clean drinking water mixing with a contaminated one.

    What Causes Backflow in Plumbing?

    Backflow or back pressure in plumbing systems may be caused by bends in the piping, burst water pipes, or plumbing systems getting backed up. The water coming through as backflow will be contaminated with chemicals which may include fertilisers, toxic substances or other potential liquids which are dangerous to your health.

    What Can You Do?

    When water backflow occurs, the good news is that it can be prevented. When you call on a backflow specialist, they will enlist correct testing and maintenance methods that will prevent problems from occurring in your residential or commercial plumbing systems.

    Austest PIpeline Solutions offer reliable and affordable backflow services with solutions to your backflow problems. It is recommended to have your backflow checked every 12 months at least to ensure the safety of your family or staff. If you have never had a backflow assessment, we recommend you have one immediately.


    Water Backflow Testing Services we provide:

    • Backflow Testing and Maintenance

      It’s recommended to have your backflow prevention system tested at least twice a year. If not, this may cause problems that could arise with the backflow causing drinking water contamination.

    • Backflow Valve Repairs

      We can repair and replace all damaged backflow valve systems. Our licensed plumbers will have your system back up and running in no time.

    • Replacement and Backflow Servicing

      Routine servicing is best for your backflow valves so that they can maintain the normal operation and prevent further damages or deterioration of your backflow valves.

    How to prevent Backflow from happening?

    To prevent backflow from occurring we install a backflow-averting valve. This one-way device prevents the backward movement of water into the potable, clean water supply.

    The devices used for prevention come under various types. This usually includes two types:

    • Testable
    • Non-testable

    The use of both testable and non-testable is governed by the hidden risks of contamination inside water systems. Overall, the testable category of devices need regular maintenance (annually) for reliable and satisfactory running. Austest Pipeline Solutions is registered and licensed for backflow installation, testing, and servicing of backflow valves.
