PRE-PURCHASE PLUMBING INSPECTIONS

If you are buying a property, a standard building and pest inspection is necessary however these inspections don’t always check for plumbing problems, especially those underground.

The excitement of buying a new property can wear off very quickly if you find that there is a broken drain or tree roots in the pipework. These issues can be expensive to fix.

To avoid this, we strongly recommend engaging McArthur Plumbing to carry out a pre-purchase plumbing inspection. We won’t just check for leaking taps and toilets, we’ll also use our drain cameras to check the sewer and stormwater drains. We’ll provide you with a report outlining any issues that we have found, along with video footage of the drain inspection.

THERMOSTATIC MIXING VALVES

A Thermostatic Mixing Valve (TMV) is a valve that blends hot water (stored at temperatures high enough to kill bacteria) with cold water to ensure constant, safe outlet temperatures to preventing scalding.

These valves are commonly found in childcare centres, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, shopping centres and other facilities for people who are sick, vulnerable or living with a disability.

Each valve must be tested and maintained annually by a qualified TMV licence holder like McArthur Plumbing.

If your Thermostatic Mixing Valves needs testing, give us a call or request a booking online now.

BACKFLOW PREVENTION DEVICES

Backflow is the reverse flow of water from a property back into the drinking water supply.
Backflow prevention devices (BPD) protect water quality from contamination. Contaminated water incidents may have serious or even fatal consequences for water consumers. By using BPD the unwanted water flow does not enter the drinking water supply, protecting water
consumers from drinking or using contaminated water. There may be any number of contamination sources within a property. Backflow prevention
provides a barrier, keeping contaminated water separate from the drinking water supply.

 

Examples of potential sources of contamination include:

 

  • fire hose reels (FHR)

  • irrigation systems

  • swimming pools

  • vehicle maintenance pits

  • ornamental ponds

  • air conditioning towers

  • vehicle/bin washing bays

  • chemical injection areas

  • commercial and manufacturing processes.

 

If your property has a backflow prevention, you must help protect the drinking water supply by ensuring all devices are adequately maintained.

 

Property owner’s responsibilities

 

The owner of a testable backflow prevention device must:

 

  • have all devices installed by a licensed plumber

  • register the device with council by providing a copy of the initial test report

  • have it inspected and tested by an endorsed licensed plumber annually

  • ensure that there is adequate access to devices for testing and maintenance

  • Types of testable devices include:

  • reduced pressure zone

  • double check, and

  • some single check valves.

 

Non-testable devices; including dual check valves, do not need to be registered or tested
annually.

Council may issue a reminder notice to prompt owners, where testable devices have been installed and testing is overdue.

Our licensed and endorsed plumbers can carry out testing on your Backflow Prevention Device/s. To book this, please call or request a booking online now.
