What is Backflow Prevention?
Which backflow device should you install?
The type of device that should be installed depends on the hazard rating of the processes carried out at the property.
The three hazard ratings identified by AS/NZS 3500:1 are:
- High hazard – any conditions, device or practice that are connected to the water supply system and have the potential to cause death.
- Medium hazard – any conditions, device or practice which in connection with the water supply system could endanger health.
- Low hazard – any conditions, device or practice which in connection with the water supply system would constitute a nuisance but not endanger health.
Residential, commercial and industrial properties that have been categorised as a medium or high hazard (and low hazard above 25mm) are required to have an approved, testable backflow prevention device installed at the outlet of the water meter.
If the process at property changes and the hazard rating is increased, the property owner must have a licenced and backflow accredited plumber certify the change in hazard rating and inform Hunter Water. A high hazard rated site containment backflow prevention device may be required to be installed.
How Does Backflow Occur?
Backflow can occur if:
- a break in a water main causes water supply system pressure to drop
- a large volume of water pumped from the water main during a fire, causes water supply system pressure to drop
- a pump connected to your system or high pressure from your system causes a reverse flow.
All premises must comply to current Australian Standards for backflow prevention.
