Can you give examples of how this actually keeps our water supply clean?
I don't see the danger of back flo on pressurized systems and one working preventer at the water source should be enough to protect the
I'm looking into this and it seems to be a scam for the most part.
The danger i can think of would be introducing a toxic substance by raising the pressure of the system at a consumption point.
However it could be that i don't know what i'm talking about.
ok.. hello D.E.D.
much of the us may be Non Compliant-- opportunity?? you decide..
an examples of how this actually keeps our water supply clean, is think about a sprinkler system on a lawn, if one were to spray fertilizer , or
bug spray, or have a dog or Farm animals,, and the water spray, when under pressure liquifys any dried or other substance,, as the system pressures
down with electric valves the potential is low to have the water collected around the sprinkler head get "sucked up" by the home owner who is filling
her morning coffee pot with tap water.. BUT, the "potential" is there!!!!! the only reason is to save lives,, yours or the people living next
as you noticed -- YES there is a danger of living in a home with a base water pressure of 50psi and have a @$$ who may wish to CAUSE harm have a
device that Could have a higher psi output, and "pump" in bad things to public water.. God save us from this ever happening in the USA.. the
downstream people could be affected but it would be STILL a localized event, and not do much damage or harm to the city..
Many Newer water districts Should require a Double Check backflow prevention on EVERY water Meter..
the WHOLE IDEA is to save lives/ cause no harm / and earn a living doing so...
what-ifs are for Children and Fiction writers... which one are you>?
as this being a SCAM-- i think Parking tickets are a BIGGER scam..
