Testing and reporting
If you have a testable backflow prevention device installed at the water meter you must have the device tested every 12 months.
Annual testing ensures that the backflow prevention device continues to operate correctly. A defective device can:
- cause a backflow incident
- allow water to escape through leaking devices
- reduce the water pressure to your property.
To complete the test, you need to engage an accredited backflow prevention plumber.
