WRAS launches video on backflow prevention

The Water Regulation Advisory Scheme (WRAS) has launched a new, informative video on preventing and identifying backflow in common domestic scenarios.

The video, which can be found on the WRAS website and social media channels, covers key information such as when backflow can occur and how it can be prevented.

WRAS created the video, which is aimed at UK consumers and homeowners, at Yorkshire Water’s training facility. It talks viewers through several scenarios that could cause backflow to occur, including water moving in the wrong direction back up into a basin tap.

Julie Spinks, managing director of WRAS, said: “At WRAS we work hard to protect public health and created this video to educate consumers on simple steps that can be taken to ensure they keep their family’s water safe.

“We hope that this serves as a useful tool for consumers and encourage plumbers and installers to use it to educate their customers.”
