Backflow occurs when the water pressure of your home or business property plumbing drops below the pressure at the mains. This causes the water in your supply pipes to flow in the wrong direction. As a result, the water is flowing back into the water supply pipes, which can mix pollutants with the freshwater. Once the water has been contaminated in your property in Brisbane and Ipswich it can cause serious sickness or death.
This means that it is required for properties to have a backflow prevention device and industrial areas have to have theirs regularly maintained and tested.
Backflow issues can affect any business or property in Brisbane and Ipswich . There are a variety of causes for backflow to occur such as a burst or ruptured water main, an excessive demand during a fire-fighting operation, a cross-connected bore pump system with the internal water plumbing system.
