Backflow Prevention And Testing

The Backflow Prevention device is a great way to help prevent Sydney’s drinking and bathing waters from flowing back into its supply. This can be fitted onto your home plumbing system, which will stop any potentially contaminated material making its way into the city’s water supply.

Installing a backflow prevention device is one of the most important things you can do to protect your water supply’s quality and prevent the risk of hazardous bacteria and debris from flowing back up to your public water supply. The three main elements commonly used in backflow devices are:

  • An Air Gap
  • A Break Tank
  • A Valve that only lets water flow in one direction

How Much Does A Reduced Pressure Zone (RPZ) Valve Cost?

The cost of an RPZ valve will vary depending on the size and needs of its service. For example, a small family home could be as low as $1K, or it may cost upwards of $3k because they are more extensive facilities. Property sizes will require various copper main pipes for different applications. Some can be as large as 8 inches, while others may only need one 3/4 inch in diameter to function correctly and deliver an efficient flow rate without compromising performance.
