RPZ/Backflow Prevention Services

Protecting Your Water Supply with Advanced Backflow Solutions

At Manariti Plumbing PTY LTD, we understand the critical importance of maintaining a safe and uncontaminated water supply. Our RPZ (Reduced Pressure Zone) and Backflow Prevention services are designed to ensure that your water system is protected from any potential backflow contamination.

What is Backflow?

Backflow is the unwanted reversal of water flow within your plumbing system, which can lead to contaminated water entering your clean water supply. This can occur due to changes in pressure within the system, causing water to flow in the opposite direction. Common causes include:

  • Backsiphonage: Negative pressure in the supply piping causes a vacuum, pulling contaminants back into the water supply.
  • Backpressure: Increased pressure in the downstream piping pushes contaminants into the potable water supply.

The Importance of Backflow Prevention

Backflow prevention is crucial for:

  • Health and Safety: Prevents harmful contaminants, chemicals, and bacteria from entering your drinking water.
  • Compliance: Ensures compliance with local and national regulations and standards.
  • Peace of Mind: Protects your family, employees, and customers from waterborne diseases and contamination.
