Bluewater Valves are based near Market Deeping,
Lincolnshire and specialise in the nationwide supply,
installation and testing of backflow prevention valves, or
reduced pressure zone valves (rpz valves). With over 30 years
experience and one of of a small number of qualified and accredited testers
of RPZ valves in the South Lincolnshire area, our service of
testing and installing RPZ valves covers the whole of the
Reduced Pressure Zone Vales prevent
industrial waste water backflowing into the mains water supply
due to the difference in pressure between the two. This is
particularly important in areas of South Lincolnshire where the
pressure of the mains water supply can be less than in other
parts of the UK.
When consumers turn their water taps on, they believe "Safe
Drinking Water" is immediately available, pure and plentiful.
They assume the water is safe simply because no one has warned
them otherwise. "Safe Drinking Water" is regulated by the DETR,
and as a professional body the water utility is responsible for
ensuring overall protection of safe drinking water under all
foreseeable circumstances. However despite strict regulations,
extremely dangerous situations continue to occur when backflow
contaminants are inadvertently allowed to enter our safe
drinking water supplies. It is also a criminal offence to
contaminate the water supply.
