If you are a homeowner in the Chattanooga area you should know about the importance of a backflow device. A backflow device is sometimes known as an RPZ valve. What does RPZ stand for? It means Reduced Pressure Zone. This device is installed onto your plumbing system to protect your drinking water and the city water supply from contaminants.
In our area RPZ valves are required when a house or building is equipped with an irrigation system. If there is a water leak in the house, house water service break, a break in the city water main, hydrant flushing, or excessive hydrant use due to an area fire, the water pressure in the house or city water mains can drop lower than the water pressure in the systems.
