Backflow Prevention Testing Plumber in Brisbane

In general, backflow prevention devices and thermostatic mixing valves connect to water tanks, fire hose reels, or irrigation systems. As with all devices, they need to be regularly tested, maintained, repaired, or replaced, to ensure that no contaminated backflow reaches the public water supply. 

AC Plumbing hires only the best-qualified plumbers, certified to work on backflow prevention devices and thermostatic mixing valves. We make sure that your property is in full compliance with the Brisbane City Council regulations.

What is a Backflow Prevention Device?

The device acts as a backflow preventer that stops the reverse flow of polluted or contaminated water back into the city’s drinking water supply. Backflow usually occurs when water pressure in the water supply mains is lower than that in the pipes in your home.

As a result of the difference in water pressures, a vacuum may form in the water main, causing a reverse flow of water to the water main. If the water supply on your property has pollutants and contaminants, it could lead to dangerous consequences, as they are introduced back into the city’s water supply.

How Often Do Backflow Prevention Devices Need Testing?

If you live in the Brisbane area, you are probably aware that Brisbane City Council requires annual testing of backflow prevention devices, to ensure the safety of drinking water consumed by the residents in the area. Every year, residents must complete backflow water testing on their homes and provide the proof by December 31st.

Bear in mind that this is a minimum legal requirement in the Brisbane area. If your plumbing and backflow prevention device has seen better days, you should investigate replacing parts or the whole system in the future, or do inspections and testing regularly. It will help you avoid a potentially catastrophic failure of the device in the future.

Contacted by Facebook 7pm to ask about fixing a concealed leak. Responded almost immediately, organised to come out next day. Turned up earlier, found the leak quickly and fixed that, as well as upgrading some taps, and replacing a water pump…

The AC team were great. From the very first phone call with Leanne to Andrew turning up the team were professional and friendly. Andrew made helpful observations and did a great (and fast) job of getting the job done.

Highly recommend. I called AC Plumbing at 11:30am to get a quote on replacing a Hot Water system. They were there in 30 minutes and the quote was very reasonable. I booked with them straight away and the job was done in under 4 hours…
