Avoid risk and death to our Community
The integrity of the entire Network Utility Operator’s reticulated water supply system depends on your device complying with The Water Act 1989. One property can contaminate the water supply for everyone else connected to that system.
Under normal conditions the pressure downstream of the cross connection is less than the upstream pressure. However, if this relationship is reversed backpressure occurs and contaminants may enter the potable water supply.
Since The Water Act of 1989 a series of laws and regulations have been put in place to ensure the water of reticulated supply systems in Australia remains potable.
If your property does not comply, your water will be shut off to preserve the Network Operator’s System. But with our backflow prevention, installation and testing services you can continue operating your business without worrying about this important aspect of regular maintenance. Riley Plumbing will manage your device for you and keep you compliant!
