Basic Types of Backflow Prevention Assemblies
Although many people are not aware of it, we see a common backflow preventer every day. The average household sink, whether in the bathroom or a kitchen, utilizes an air gap to prevent the potable water supply from becoming contaminated. Pressure vacuum breaker assemblies are also commonly found in places where water is supplied to irrigation systems. Some businesses, specifically hospitals and commercial shops that use hazardous chemicals, are isolated from the rest of the system with reduced pressure backflow prevention assemblies.
