Reduced pressure zone backflow assembly installation is absolutely necessary for any irrigation sprinkler system within the Orlando or Central Florida area. This type of backflow assembly protects the potable water system from cross contamination by preventing the reverse flow of water by backsiphonage or back pressure.
When reduced pressure zone backflow assembly installation is undertaken at either your home or business it most probably will need to be installed on either schedule 80 p.v.c. , galvanised or copper pipe & fittings to comply with local code. The reduced pressure zone backflow assembly must always be installed with the relief valve outlet at a minimum of 12 inches above grade but must not exceed a maximum height of 3 foot.
Any backflow assembly must be tested annually to comply with local code. They must be tested by a state certified backflow tester with a pressure differential type gauge. If the backflow fails the test it must be repaired by a state certified tester that is also certified to repair the unit. The results must then be logged with with your local municipality by the test / repair contractor.
