Any link to the pipes in Sydney Water, including fire services, must be protected by installing devices to prevent backflow. Backflow devices are fitted at the boundary of your property or business premises to prevent contaminated water from flowing into public water supply.
Backflow can occur when the water flows back into the Sydney Water pipes from your property. For example, where a water supply exhibits a pressure difference, water may travel back into the mains. It will result in polluted water being drawn back into the domestic water system causing the consumption of unclean water to cause people to get sick.
Backflow prevention devices are important because they protect water quality and must be installed to stop contaminated water from flowing into the public water supply system. In general, backflow devices will use one of three elements to stop the return of polluted water: Valve, Break Tank, or Plumbing solutions allowing water to flow in only one direction.
