Backflow Testing and Repairs in Perth

Backflow systems are a crucial part of keeping your water system clean and safe. These devices protect the users from illness due to unsanitary water – keeping water potable. Backflow systems stop contaminants from moving through the water and getting where they shouldn’t.

These devices require periodic testing, maintenance, and repair so that they can keep doing their job appropriately. Like many other plumbing projects in WA, backflow installation, testing, and repair require a plumber.

At Ember Plumbing, our certified technicians offer extensive backflow device services to help keep Perth water clean. Whether you need a new backflow protector or maintenance on your current system, Ember is here to help.

Who Has Backflow Protection?

Federal and state regulations state that water service providers have to maintain necessary backflow systems. In Western Australia, however, there are also laws that require many businesses to have, and maintain, a backflow device. If your property has business facilities on it, then chances are it requires a backflow prevention device.

Backflow Testing

It is easy to understand why backflow prevention is a good thing. Because it is a good thing, ensuring that it is working is also important. Like anything else, backflow systems wear down over time, components start to fail, and then leaks develop. To prevent catastrophe and an unnecessary closure of your business, periodic testing is a must.

We offer extensive backflow testing services so that your water keeps flowing safely and in the right direction. Some ways to tell if it is time to test your backflow system include:

  • Changes in Water Colour
  • Reduced Water Pressure
  • Visible Particles in Water
  • 1 Year Since Last Test (Water Corporation)

Backflow Repair

After some time and enough tests, you can expect your backflow system to fail. This always happens eventually. And when it does, Ember is here for you.

Because backflow systems are so important for the health and safety of whoever uses it, repairs must be done by a licenced professional. Luckily, after that failed test, our technicians are here to help 24/7.

Types of Backflow Systems

Ember services the three major backflow devices used in Perth:

  • Double-Check Valve Backflow Protection
  • Break Tank System
  • Reduced Pressure Zone Backflow Protection

Backflow protection is an essential aspect of maintaining the health and safety of everyone who encounters your business or property. These devices keep sewage and other contaminants out of the water you use to clean, drink, and conduct your business. If you’re looking to install, test, or repair any backflow system, call Ember today for a free evaluation of your project.
