What is Backflow Prevention?
Backflow prevention is a mean’s of protecting a drinking water supply - mains water or tank water - from cross contamination. There are many forms of cross contamination that pose a potential health risk to the public and in high hazard situations even cause death. Cross contamination occurs when a contaminated substance, for example hazardous chemicals, pesticides and medical waste from hospitals are able enter our clean drinking water supply through back siphonage and back pressure.
If your property or business needs a backflow prevention device installed or maintained you must use a licensed plumber with backflow prevention endorsement on their licence.
It is illegal for a plumber without backflow endorsement or a member of the public to work on back flow prevention devices. Severe fines apply.
So don’t risk it! Use Low’s plumbing for backflow testing and services – I am a licensed Sunshine Coast Plumber with a backflow endorsement and am ready to help.
