Backflow Prevention and Testing 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?

Backflow is a plumbing term that refers to when a 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.


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.

  • 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.

    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.
