There's plenty of reason why we keep to the belief that no piece of technology is fool-proof. Don't take us for luddites – being professional plumbers, we know all too well that even the best piece of technology can be prone to failure or malfunction. Case in point, this applies all too well when it comes to commercial backflow maintenance. While plenty of commercial property managers understand well enough how a backflow prevention device is useful in doing as its name suggests, the truth of the matter is that even these devices can fail from time to time. Whether due to wear and tear, or simply due to a need for repairs as a result of a malfunction, this is where Tait Plumbing can come to your rescue.
A Legal Requirement, to Save A Whole Lot of Mess!
Did you know that it's a legal requirement for Australian businesses to conduct their annual backflow testing? Trust us to know this for a fact: we provide backflow testing as a staple service in any of our jobs related to commercial annual maintenance. Due to the occupational health and safety concerns related to backflow testing, it's easy to understand how it comes about as a legal requirement to ensure no contaminated water enters your premises' plumbing water supply. Believe us when we say that backflows can be as putrid as they sound!
Regardless of whether you've had the misfortune of experiencing this for yourself or not, backflow mishaps often occur as a result of a drop in water pressure. When this happens, contaminated water may flow back into your plumbing system. This can happen due to a number of causes, with some among them being:
- Burst pipes,
- Frozen pipes, or
- A sharp increase in water usage.
Helping You to Ensure Safe and Drinkable Water Usage in Your Commercial Premises
You surely won't need us to remind you of the possible horrors that could come about, should such a scenario involving a backflow mishap happen within a facility such as a strata-managed development, or within an aged care home! Our plumbers at Tait Plumbing are always more than ready to help you if you find an immediate need to get your backflow maintenance squared away. Whether your facility needs an immediate remedy due to an emergency, or a new backflow prevention device installed, we are always ready to assist.
