Backflow Prevention

Protecting our communities most precious resource, Drinking water

    As a community our drinking water is our most valuable and precious resource , and one way this is protected is through the installation of a variety of backflow prevention devices. A backflow prevention device prevents the reverse flow of water from a potentially polluted source into the potable (drinking) water supply system. It is a requirement under the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2002 that owners of installed testable backflow prevention devices must:

  • register the device with the local government
  • at least once each year, have the device inspected or tested by a person who is licensed to do the work.

At Carmont Plumbing and Gas we have licensed plumbers endorsed to carry out inspections, maintenance, installations and repairs on all forms of back flow prevention devices
