Professional and expert backflow prevention and testing are essential because contaminated water tastes bad and is unhealthy to consume. Backflow transpires when water flows back into your water supply system.

The reality is that it’s a serious safety hazard because when your water supply has a backflow issue, it can cause corrosion of pipes, which in turn causes leaks. When your drinking water supply is flowing back into your home, cross-contamination of toxins and human waste is usually present.

It’s not unusual for backflow to happen when:

  • When water pressure is too high
  • A water pipe nearby bursts
  • The main water supply system reduces water pressure because of the high demand.

Water is an essential part of our lives, which is why we, the crew at Gold Coast Plumbing Services, ensure it’s always flowing in the right direction. We’re licensed plumbers who are here to help your plumbing system run smoothly. We provide backflow testing services to ensure that your water is always flowing correctly and it’s always safe to drink.

Our Process for Backflow Prevention & Testable Devices

Having a backflow prevention device installed is to prevent dirty water from contaminating the clean water in your home or office. They are often installed in pools and on your main water supply line so that the water you cook and drink is always fresh.

Our crew provides residential and commercial property backflow testing in Gold Coast, so you can be certain not to experience the hazards of cross-contamination. We come to your home or office and determine the situation so that we know what will work best to prevent contamination on your property.

As part of the process for your residential or commercial properties, we are always upfront about costs and have competitive pricing based on our recommended course of action. Given that contaminated and fresh water should never mix, we are likely to recommend the installation of an excellent backflow prevention system in a timely manner.

Testable Backflow Prevention Devices for Installation

When looking to install backflow prevention devices for residential and commercial properties, our plumbing company determines whether you have a low, medium, or high risk of having a contaminated source. If considered medium or above, it’s essential our fully qualified plumbers have a backflow prevention device installed.

The process usually involves installing a durable valve, which must be installed correctly in order to do its job properly. Calling our backflow testing Gold Coast plumbers will ensure that contaminants of any type will never reach your drinking water supply, using professional resources and a backflow device that is top-notch.

Backflow Prevention Device

Once the backflow prevention devices are installed, we recommend annual testing of your water supply, especially if you have any of the following:

  • A swimming pool
  • An irrigation system
  • Fire hydrant
  • Greywater system
  • Vehicle maintenance pit
  • Other activity with your water mains.

You will know if your backflow valve is faulty or has a defect and requires the expertise of a plumber if:

  • It’s not preventing a contaminated water supply
  • Water pressure is impacted
  • Leaking devices.

With annual testing and maintenance of your backflow devices and water supply system by a licensed plumber, you will not only be protecting your drinking water supply but will be managing the care of your water pressure.
