Recording Now Available: Hydraulics of Backflow
Featured Product from Watts
Fire connections were among the last to add backflow prevention. In fact, several parts of the country still don't have backflow preventers. When water authorities began mandating the installation of backflow preventers on fire connections, they wanted a way to detect the loss of water in unmetered connections to keep track of water being used to put out fires, resulting in the approval and use of detector assemblies. Recently, feedback from the fire protection industry has led to the development of a new kind of detector assembly – the Type II.
