Our water supply is a simple circle — desalinated drinkable water flows from the public mains into your site and then into the sewers to be processed again. Backflow occurs when soiled water flows backwards and reenters the mains, tainting the drinking water supply.
Backflow prevention devices protect our public water supply from contamination. All commercial venues are required to have such devices, and all residential sites must have a backflow risk assessment. Inner City Plumbing’s specialist plumbers can ensure your site complies with all water safety regulations.
We do our best to provide affordable backflow services by helping you choose the most effective type of backflow prevention device for your site. Your options include:
A contaminated water supply would be a major health hazard. We don’t take any chances. Using industry-leading tools, technology and premium parts, we can create robust solutions to prevent backflow.

Installing devices and tending to pipes often creates some level of mess. But we’re a family-run business, and we can’t bear to think how disappointed our elders would be if we left a mess behind.

When we first started our business, we chose a name that perfectly captured who we were. But that was thirty years ago. Although we still call Abbotsford home, we go way beyond the inner city.
These days, Inner City Plumbing services over 160 suburbs spanning the CBD, inner-city and outer suburbs.
With our fully-equipped vans constantly patrolling and ready to go, we can still guarantee our one-hour response time no matter how close to the edge of our service area you’re based.
Every business has its nuances and contours, but running a successful business is like running any other — you just need a clean, simple foundation to grow on. Our foundation consists of three simple principles:
We’ve been following those principles for thirty years now, and they’ve yet to lead us astray.
The water in our plumbing systems is forced to flow in one direction by constant water pressure. If that water pressure dips below a certain threshold, the water can flow backwards and create backflow. A drop in water pressure can be caused by blocked, damaged or corroded pipes — all problems our full-service plumbers can help you with.
Once our plumbers have inspected your backflow device/s, we will write a report detailing our findings and make recommendations on improving water safety at your site. We’ll submit that report to your local water authority.
You should get your backflow preventer tested every 12 months at least.
