Below we have mentioned 3 signs why you should replace your backflow preventer. Take a look.
- Condition of your valve
Some of the smaller valves, with usage, become brittle and they crack; these valves should be immediately replaced. Also, it is a common occurrence for these valves to rust away when it is constantly in contact with water. This rust affects the assembly body and eventually has to be replaced.
- Location of your valve
The valves of a back flow preventer should be on the outdoors, in above ground enclosures. If not placed in enclosures they will be exposed to outside threats which can affect them and break them thus resulting in frequent replacements.
- Size of the valve
Larger valves can be repaired easily and on the contrary the smaller valves can be easily replaced then be repaired. Also, the cost of replacing a larger valve is more than replacing the smaller one; hence, it is preferred to replace the smaller ones while repairing the larger valves.
