Installations, Maintenance and Testing Backflow Prevention Devices in the Gympie Region

What is a backflow prevention device?

A backflow prevention device is a plumbing assembly that stops potentially polluted water from reverse flowing into potable (drinking) water. Backflow prevention devices need to be tested every 12months by a licensed backflow endorsed plumber.


Where might a backflow prevention device be installed?

Some, but not all, areas that might require a backflow prevention device:

  • Fire hose reels or hydrants

  • Swimming pools

  • Garden ponds

  • Commercial dishwashers

  • Hotels and motels

  • Schools, daycare centres and kindergartens

  • Restaurants and cafes

  • Mechanics workshops

  • Sports Clubhouses

  • Caravan parks

  • Medical or dental surgeries

  • Veterinary surgeries

  • Unit blocks

How often do I have to have my devices tested?

Gympie Regional Council requires all owners of backflow prevention devices to have them tested every 12 months by a licensed and endorsed plumber.


Are all plumbers accredited to test backflow prevention devices?

Not all plumbers hold a Backflow Prevention Accreditation on their plumbing licence so you cannot assume that any plumber can legally perform a backflow-related service.


We pride ourselves on quality workmanship that is 100% compliant with QBCC and Australian Standards.


Our plumbers are on call 24/7 including public holidays for all plumbing emergencies. 


We are the trusted plumbing specialists for homes, businesses and real estates across the Gympie LGA.

Excellent service. Very helpful, efficient and professional. I highly recommend their plumbing services and will definitely use this company in the future.
