A backflow prevention device prevents the reverse flow of water from a potentially polluted source into the potable (drinking) water supply system.
What are my responsibilities?
Under Victorian Government Plumbing legislation, the owner of an installed testable backflow prevention device must ensure the device is registered with your water Utility, and have the device tested annually by an endorsed backflow prevention plumber.
What are the responsibilities of the endorsed backflow plumber?
Within 10 business days of testing the device, the endorsed backflow prevention plumber must submit an Inspection and maintenance report of the backflow prevention device to the water utility and to the owner.
