Backflow Testing – FAQ

How long does backflow testing typically take?

Backflow testing usually completes within one to two hours, depending on the complexity of the system and accessibility of the backflow devices.

What happens if my system fails RPZ testing?

If a system fails RPZ testing, it indicates a risk of contamination. We provide immediate recommendations for repairs or replacements necessary to ensure the system passes compliance on retesting.

What does backflow prevention testing involve?

Backflow prevention testing involves checking the mechanical functions of backflow devices to ensure they effectively prevent contaminated water from reversing into the clean water supply. This includes physical inspections and valve testing.

What are the legal requirements for annual backflow testing?

In Victoria, properties equipped with a backflow prevention device, such as an RPZ valve, must undergo accredited backflow testing every 12 months to ensure compliance and functionality, as mandated by local water safety regulations.

Does backflow device testing disrupt water service?

Backflow device testing may briefly interrupt water service as valves are tested to ensure they properly prevent water from flowing backwards. However, disruptions are typically minimal and short-lived.

Can your backflow plumbers also handle repairs during an inspection?

Our backflow plumbers are equipped to perform repairs during inspections if any issues are detected. This ensures that your system meets compliance standards promptly without needing a separate service visit.
