Common backflow testing questions

A backflow device is something that is fitted to the water pipe on a property to stop the flow of water moving back into the mains water system which can occur if there is a difference or drop in water pressure. If you have backflow issues there is a risk that potentially contaminated water containing hazardous bacteria and debris could flow back up into your water service. Backflow prevention devices stop backflow siphonage problems either by a;

  • One-way valve
  • An air gap
  • A break tank


Examples of properties or situations where a backflow prevention device is required can  include;

  • Construction sites.
  • Emergency sprinkler or fire service systems
  • Swimming pools
  • Manufacturing facilities.
  • Restaurants with grease trap


Nu-Trend is a licensed and accredited backflow prevention plumber that can do the  required tests, inspections and commission backflow devices. Nu-Trend will submit the completed test report to Sydney Water (or relevant water authority or council) on your behalf. Backflow testing ensures the device is working, during a backflow test, we would turn off the downstream shut-off valve, wait a few minutes and test the pressure in the system using a special backflow testing kit. The test is carried out to ensure the pressure is as it should be and the device is functioning.

What is backflow testing?

Backflow testing is a process that is used to test your plumbing system to make sure that drinking water is not being contaminated by dirty water infiltrating the water supply.

What is the reason for a backflow ?

Backflow can potentially allow contaminants into the drinking water system. Back siphonage can occur when the pressures from other sources are lower than the water system’s pressure. This could allow an influx, or pulling of contaminated water into the system.

How much does backflow testing cost?

The typical rate for backflow device testing can vary greatly. It depends on your location, the type of device/s that require testing etc The cost can then fluctuate to repair and/or replace the backflow device if found to be faulty.

What does backflow mean?

Backflow is a term in plumbing for an unwanted flow of water in the reverse direction. It can be a serious health risk for the contamination of water supplies with foul water.
