What is a vacuum breaker and why is it needed?
Hose connection vacuum breakers (HCVB) are backflow prevention devices that attach to the hose tap outlet to protect your main water supply from back-siphonage of non-drinkable water. Backflow risk increases when the tap is used to fill a swimming pool or pond, for garden irrigation, or anywhere else where back-pressure from contaminated water can occur. Vacuum breakers are also used for rinse tanks, laboratory sinks and other industrial environments.
The term “vacuum breaker” refers to the device’s ability to prevent vacuum conditions that can suck water back into the tap.
WA law requires that all new hose taps (also known as hose cocks and bibcocks) be fitted with such a device.
As a backflow prevention device, they can only be installed by a licensed plumber. Plumbdog’s fully qualified plumbers can connect and service all types of backflow valve device and are happy to advise on their correct usage and maintenance.
