Choosing a backflow prevention device
The type of backflow preventer you are required to install depends on its specific intended use. We will ensure that you understand which device you need and why according to industry standards. If you require a building permit for your device installation, we will cover these issues including a professionally completed form 9 which will help guide you in obtaining the proper paperwork and council approvals.
In the City of Gold Coast, the term “backflow prevention” is used to describe the prevention of reverse water flow from a contaminated or polluted source into a water supply. Backflow is caused by cross connection, a point where drinking water could encounter a polluting substance. This includes piping with access to the water supply, submerged inlets, a connected auxiliary water supply, removable sections, bypass arrangements, or temporary devices. A backflow prevention device can prevent problems by keeping contaminants out of the drinking water supply.
The uses of Backflow prevention devices
Plumbers use backflow prevention devices in numerous applications, including irrigation plumbing and sprinkler systems. Sprinkler backflow preventers keep water in the sprinkler system from contaminating drinking water, and a backflow preventer in an irrigation system will eliminate the backup of water into the water mains. If a backflow prevention device on your property leaks, contact Blaze Plumbing & Gas to diagnose and solve your backflow preventer problems.
