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
Hotels and motels
Schools, daycare centres and kindergartens
Restaurants and cafes
Medical or dental surgeries
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.
