A backflow device can be easily installed by a licensed plumber to prevent dirty water reverse-flowing into clean, potable water.

You may have/need a backflow device if you have any of the following on your property:

·        an irrigation system

·        fire hose reels

·        commercial or industrial equipment or activities that could pollute the drinking water supply (such as air conditioning cooling towers or chemical cleaning areas)

·        water outlets in proximity to pollutants, grease traps or chemicals

·        an alternate water supply.


Backflow maintenance helps protect the quality of our clean water supply. Gympie Regional Council requires backflow prevention device owners to have their devices tested yearly.
