Backflow Prevention Sydney

Have you had your Backflow Prevention Valves Serviced Lately?

In certain conditions water can travel from a premises back into a water main when there is a pressure indifference in a water supply. This can result in contaminated, or unclean water being drawn back into the domestic water supply causing people to become ill from drinking the contaminated water.

The water that is supplied to our premises has been through a cleansing process, which is what makes it safe to consume, however there are certain scenarios where this supply becomes contaminated.

Common Causes

  • Hand held toilet sprayer’s
  • Bathtubs & showers, where there is an extension on the water outlet that can be submerged. ( Such as those extension hoses that connect onto the bath spout)
  • Kitchen sinks that have a retractable hand piece that can sit in a full sink of water.
  • Car washing bays.
  • A house that can reach into a grease trap.
  • Chemical plants.
  • Garbage areas where a hose is used to wash out bins.
  • Swimming pool areas where a hose can reach the pool.

All the scenarios above are just some of the causes of water back flowing into a water system.

Potential ‘back flow risk’ which means that if there is not adequate measures taken, then both you, your family and other people in your neighbourhood are at risk of consuming contaminated water.

How Silverwater Plumbing Can Help

Typically back flow happens as a result of ‘siphonage’. Siphonage occurs in scenarios where there is a build up of pressure at a given source, greater than the pressure in the pipes. An example of this is when Sydney water shut off the water main due to things such as a break or leak in the water main and as a result of this it causes the water to be siphoned back into the main.

For many of these situations, there are devices that can be fitted at the the boundary of your property or if you are in a commercial premises you can protect other locations of the property.

Great service and very professional. Replaced my hot water from an indoor to outdoor unit and upgraded relevant gas and water pipes. Great attention to details too even though the job was quite big. For example sanding off the copper pipe after cutting it before installation. Price is fair and you get discount for multiple jobs. Highly recommend them.

I highly recommend Silverwater Plumbing services to everyone, they are friendly and experienced. Our toilet which is attached to the wall had been blocked for a while, we are happy that it is in use again. These guys detached it and resealed it all perfectly. We were offered the best quote and the best service ! Thank you for the 5 star service
