Pressure Vacuum Breaker assemblies should be installed at least 12" (300mm) above the highest piping and outlet downstream of the assembly to preclude backpressure. Assemblies should be installed so they are easily accessible for maintenance, periodic testing, and where discharge will not be objectionable. They should be protected from freezing. If the assemblies are subject to freezing temperatures, the freeze protection procedures outlined in "Service Instruction Freeze Protection Model 765" must be followed. Assemblies must not be installed where backpressure could occur.
The discharge pressure shall be maintained above 3.0psi on
1/2" - 11/4" (15 - 32mm) sizes and 5.0psi on 11/2"- 2" (40 - 50mm) sizes to insure seating of the spring loaded air inlet poppet.
Thermal water expansion and/or water hammer down stream of the backflow preventer can cause pressure increases. Excessive pressure should be eliminated to avoid possible damage to the system and assembly.
