Excellence in backflow prevention

Backflow is a plumbing concern where water unexpectedly reverses direction, risking contamination of your fresh water supply with harmful elements. Such a reversal can be triggered by various reasons, notably changes in water pressure or malfunctions in the plumbing infrastructure. 

The consequences of this are twofold: there’s the immediate health risk from polluted drinking water, and then there’s the potential damage to property structures. With a solid decade of hands-on experience in Sydney, SEP is adept at addressing these backflow issues. Our proficient team goes beyond just patching up visible problems.

Chris and his team were fantastic to work with – fast, responsive and financially pragmatic. We had received another quote that was double the price and wouldn’t have even solved the problem. Chris came and saved the day, identified a misdiagnosis of the issue, charged half the price and actually solved the problem. He was generous with his time and it was a job well done. Thank you Chris and SEP team.
Josh came and completed the work efficiently and was really friendly. The cost was reasonable and as quoted by Chris. Thanks again.

Chris and the team were on time and very reliable. After only a short time on site the problem was found and rectified. Both contractors were very professional and made the bathroom spotless after fixing the issue. Highly recommend.

Our sewer main has been blocking up for years. Other plumbers would come, unblocked the pipe and leave, only to block up again soon after. They never bothered to fix the real issue. Chris and Peter worked out what the problem was and fixed the sewer pipe once and for all. They are very professional and friendly. I recommend them for your next plumbing job.

My toilet flush water was running continuously and the cistern is behind a tiled wall so it was difficult to access and identify the problem myself. Found Chris through Ryde District Mum group and quickly messaged him for a quote. He was very prompt and fixed my toilet flush the following day. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a quick fix especially now that most of us are working home and have time to fix things left undone.
