What is a backflow prevention device?

A backflow prevention device prevents the reverse flow of water from a potentially polluted source into the potable (drinking) water supply system.

What are my responsibilities?

Under Queensland Government plumbing legislation, the owner of an installed testable backflow prevention device must ensure the device is registered with Council and have the device tested annually by an endorsed backflow plumber.

What are the responsibilities of the endorsed backflow plumber?

Within 10 business days of testing the device, the endorsed backflow plumber must submit an approved Queensland Government Form 9 Backflow Prevention Valve Test Report to Council.
