Backflow Testing & Prevention
What is backflow?
Backflow is when water flows backward into the public water supply network. This is caused when water pressure drops in the water distribution system causing water to flow in the opposite direction.
Backflow is one of the biggest risks to the water supply. It is a potential source of contamination that can seriously affect the quality and safety of our drinking water.
IQP Annual Backflow Testing
Auckland Council require that as part of the annual Building Warrant Of Fitness (BWOF), all backflow prevention devices must be inspected and tested annually by an Independently Qualified Person (IQP). This applies to commercial buildings and also some residential buildings if they are deemed a “high or medium risk site”.
