Backflow Device Testing & Servicing
JNJ Plumbing undertakes annual testing and servicing of Backflow Prevention Devices to keep these valves in good working order so that they can continue to safeguard the public water supply and protect our valued client’s facilities . This important routine maintenance function is required to be performed by an Accredited Practitioner in accordance with AS3500.1992 and AS2845.3:1993 Standards.
JNJ’s Accredited Plumber tests Backflow Prevention devices by turning off the downstream shutoff valve and connecting a specialized Backflow testing kit to pressure test the valve’s operation. If the valve operates correctly, we immediately return supply to the site. If it doesn’t pass the required pressure test, we repair or replace the faulty valve, and retest the repaired Backflow prevention system to verify it’s compliant operation.
Once the testing work has been completed, JNJ’s Plumber provides a test report to our client and lodges it on-line with the relevant water authority. These measures ensure the site remains compliant to the mandatory testing and reporting provisions for Containment Backflow prevention devices.
As many of JNJ Plumbing’s clients operate busy Emergency Service facilities such as FRV, Hospitals, Ambulance Victoria, etc, our approach to these testing works is to schedule suitable times around our client’s requirements to ensure they can maintain an uninterrupted water supply to their critical services
