backflow prevention

The EPA requires backflow prevention on every irrigation system connected to a potable water supply. There are 2 styles of devices allowed by the State of Indiana. Pressure Vacuum Breaker (PVB) or Reduced Principle Device (RP). PVB is required to be 12″ above the highest discharge point. The RP device is required to be 12″ above the ground. Both units are required to be certified yearly.
