Water Tappings & Backflow Prevention

Helms Plumbing Services regularly perform new water connections to development sites.

Our projects often require us to install fire service supply with check meters and also domestic water supply at times with hydrants, non-return valves and isolation valves.

All Melbourne sites requiring water must have some form of back flow valve installed to safeguard the quality of Melbourne's water supply (if water becomes contaminated these valves stop water flowing back into the system and affecting other sites). 

Helms Plumbing Services arrange traffic management to ensure the safety of everyone associated with the work, as well as pedestrians and vehicles travelling nearby. Council & Vicroads permits to excavate the mains water supply are obtained and coordinated with the water authorities to arrange the water tapping.
