I need a backflow preventer that I can use for my drip irrigation system. The plastic models available won't hold up to continuous use in the system. It needs to be able to work at 25 to 120 lbs of pressure.
I know this is minuscule compared to a pressure washer but still a problem I need to address. Power Flow Preventer Model #31091

I installed one of these for my pressure washer. Every time when I'm using the pressure washer and I stop, the backflow preventer squirts water all over. Is this normal?

Answer: 
Hi Rob M. Yes, this is normal. The backflow preventer is used to stop the water from entering into your homes water lines. So when the pressure washer is not in use the water will be released through the backflow preventer. Thanks for our question.

I attempted to use a power washer today, however I couldn't complete task because the backflow preventer was gushing water so bad. Would this help my problem?

Answer: 
I do not believe a backflow preventer will solve this problem, as it sounds like it’s a connection issue. The backflow preventer only prevents water from returning back into your plumbing; it will not help external leaks. You may want to check the o-rings on your hose. I hope this helps!

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leaked like crazy! Leaked like crazy and it really affected the water flow. It was that bad! June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product works as advertised The only problem was I could not find it in the store even with the assistance of employees. Thus, I had to order it on line with delivery to the store and within an hour I received a text that my order was available. This means that it was in the store when I was looking for it but there was no employee that could locate it. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best safty feature for Pressure Washers This is a must for any pressure washer. This product stops a 2700 psi power washer from ruining your garden hose. I blew out 2 hoses before I realized that it was backpressure. I haven't ruined one hose since using this. December 11, 2014
