Backflow prevention and owner responsibilities

A backflow prevention device prevents the reverse flow of water from a potentially polluted source into the potable (drinking) water supply system. You may have a backflow prevention device fitted on your property if you have any of the following:

  • an irrigation system
  • fire hose reels or hydrants
  • a commercial or industrial activity or machinery connected to the mains
  • water outlets in proximity to pollutants, grease traps or chemicals
  • an underground rainwater tank that has mains water backup.

If you have a testable backflow prevention device on your property it must be tested annually and the test results forwarded to the local authority. Reduced pressure zone, double check and some single check valves are testable backflow prevention devices.

The details of the device must also be registered with Council. Non-testable devices like dual check valves and some single check valves do not need to be tested annually.
