What is backflow prevention?
Having a backflow prevention installed is a mandatory requirement for all facilities across Australia. This is to ensure that people aren’t being exposed to contaminated water and that it doesn’t mix back into drinking water.
This is such an important aspect that needs to be taken into consideration, as your facility is responsible for how it looks after the people coming and going inside your business. You can read more on backflow maintenance plumbing systems here.
How can you tell if the water is contaminated?
It is often hard to tell when 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.
