What is Backflow Prevention?

Backflow means an unwanted flow of treated or non-potable water substance from any domestic, industrial or institutional piping system into the pure, potable water distribution system. 

Numerous specific conditions may cause backflow; basically, the reverse pressure gradient may be due to a loss of pressure in the supply main called backsiphonage or by the flow from a pressurised system through an unprotected cross connection, which is called backpressure. Thus the term backflow covers both a backsyphonage condition and a back pressure condition.

Degrees Of Hazards

The type of backflow device used to prevent backflow from occurring at the point of a cross-connection depends on the kind of substance that may flow into the potable water supply. A pollutant is any substance considered a health hazard if it causes illness or death if ingested.

High Hazard

Any condition, device or practice in connection with the potable water supply system has the potential to cause death.

Medium Hazard

Any condition, device or practice in connection with the potable water supply system has the potential to endanger health.

Seb was easy to deal with, turned up quickly, used a camera to find the broken stormwater pipe under the driveway, and later sent out a report so we could send that off to our builder, to resolve the issue. Recommend Seb highly for any of your plumbing needs.
