Banjo Nominees have been specialising in backflow testing in Melbourne since 1958. Back Flow Valves are required to be tested every 12 months, and all results must be sent from your accredited plumber to the relevant water authority.
It is mandatory to have backflow prevention systems checked and tested every 12 months to prevent risk of water contamination. Businesses have the responsibility to install and test their backflow prevention assemblies, and to ensure that their respective backflow device is working and well-maintained. Neglecting this responsibility may cause contamination and result in a variety of illnesses. Other reasons why businesses need water backflow prevention include:
Backflow testing is a procedure that is used to examine a plumbing system to make sure that the drinking water is not being contaminated by dirty water flowing the wrong way through the system. Backflow refers to water running backwards through a water system and contaminating the drinking water supply, making it undrinkable.
Backflow testing is required for occupational health and safety reasons. Backflow can cause water contamination which can result in serious illness. Backflow prevention devices require testing upon installation, when repaired or relocated, or at the least on an annual schedule. Some high-risk systems require quarterly testing.
The backflow prevention testing procedure includes a mechanical plumber opening and closing valves to check for any abnormalities in the system and then forming a report. Once the plumber has done the backflow prevention device inspection and maintenance report, the report needs to be submitted to the relevant water authority.
Back Flow Valves are required to be tested every 12 months. and all results must be sent from your accredited plumber to the relevant water authority. Businesses are responsible for the installation and testing of their backflow prevention assemblies, as backflow and contaminated drinking water could leave them open to liabilities.
The backflow prevention testing cost will depend on the scale of the job, but is an affordable test when you consider the cost of medical bills that companies might be required to pay yearly due to a faulty backflow and contaminated water.
