Q:Is this product qualified as a backflow preventer for city inspection?
by|Jan 27, 2020
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  no a back flow allows water to flow in one direction. be careful not to in stall it in backwards.

by|Apr 20, 2021

    A:  As a building inspector I have to advise you that you must follow your jurisdiction's building codes. Our code requires a whole house backflow preventer to be located on the main street line at the house before any diversions are attached. Well owners are required to have the same protection. This would prevent any contamination to the utility or main source. It also requires all faucets outside to have hose back flow preventers. Likewise all underground irrigation must have backflow protection. Any irrigation injection system must have additional pressure regulation and backflow preventer. The code also requires ports for testing the system. Home Depot sells a brass backflow preventer and any store plumbing specialist would be able to lead you in the right direction. You can also go online to find this item.

      A:  Yes they are designed for that use ! The clerk probably doesn't know what end of a hammer to use, let alone the application of this or any valve .

        Worked as advertised.
        Worked perfectly. Just make sure the piping is fully seated.

        Used for Pressure Washer detergent line
        Needed these parts for a detergent pressure washer line. The original parts were nowhere built as strong or durable as these are, but more expensive than what I wanted to pay. :)
