Keeping our water safe
I attended John’s job in Noosaville after he had received a letter from his local council requiring him to have a Backflow prevention test done by a certified and Backflow approved plumber.
I completed a backflow test using a specified test kit and ensured that all valves were working correctly.
Backflow is a safety device that prevents contamination into our mains water supply.
Sunshine Coast Council in accordance with the AS3500 require that all rate payers with an underground Water Tank must have an RPZ, Dual Check Valve or Double Check Valve in place.
An Annual Backflow prevention test is required to ensure all valves are working correctly. All test results are sent directly to the local council who record the results and keep them on their file.
