Backflow Prevention

Local Tasmanian Councils requires businesses such as medical centres, hospitals, vetinary practices, commercial kitchens and laboratories to have a backflow prevention devise installed on your water supply to prevent contaminated water in the property from re-entering the mains supply or cross connecting internally during a pipe burst event.

Australian Standard 3500 – Part 1 – Section 4.46 requires that all backflow prevention devises be tested and certified by a licensed plumber every twelve months from date of installation to ensure the safety of the public water supply. Failure to comply with these testing requirements will result in legal action against your business by your Local City Council.
