Do you require backflow maintenance?
If you meet the risk required for a registered device, It’s mandatory to have it tested by an Australian licensed plumber annually, and must be registered if it is installed in the boundary line. A risk assessment is completed on installation which would decide the risk level of your properties backflow and if registered as a medium or high risk building the test results must be submitted to the water corporation no more than 5 days after having the check which should take place no more than 12 months from your last check.
Backflow testing is where a qualified plumber checks the pressure and flow of your water supply system. They are also checking for water contamination. So even if your property is residential it’s always good to have the test done to ensure your water is not contaminated.
How can you tell if the water is contaminated?
It is often hard to tell when your water is contaminated as it can be odourless, colourless, and tasteless.
That’s why it’s important that each year you should have your facilities’ water supply checked by the required date. At Mathiou Services we are qualified and trained to carry out backflow testing with scheduled maintenance every year to meet these regulations.
