Backflow Protection

The proper backflow protection is so vital to your family’s health. Here is how the state defines a situation requiring protection: “Any Irrigation system connected to a potable water source shall be protected against backflow by a backflow device.”

In New Jersey there are only two (2) devices allowed by the State for correct backflow protection and both of them are used for different situations. One is a Pressure Vacuum Breaker (PVB) and the other is a Reduced Pressure Vacuum Breaker (RPVB). A PVB is installed when the device calls for an installation where the device can be installed twelve (12) inches above the highest sprinkler head. The RPVB is to be used when the device is less than twelve (12) inches above the highest sprinkler head along with some installation restrictions. The majority of installations require the PVB, and it is the standard of the industry.

Other than those two (2) types, all others do not protect you from a backflow application. Here are the types that are unacceptable and illegal in the State of New Jersey.

AVB (Atmospheric Vacuum Breaker)

MasterValve AVB (Valved Atmospheric Vacuum Breaker)

Master Valve (Simple Zone Valve Connected to Controller)

Double Check Valve (Dual Checkvalve assembly)

Please be sure that the contractor you have gotten an estimate from is giving you a price that has the proper backflow device included. Also, please be sure that the contractor is State Certified. A State Certified Landscape Irrigation Contractor is required to display his Certification # on his trucks.

Certifications

The following information is provided to educate New Jersey Residents as to the State requirements for any company doing business as a Landscape Irrigation Contractor. The information provided has been condensed to simplify reading.

Installations

If you are considering landscape improvements or renovations, the first person you should call is a professional contractor. Licensed and trained in quality installations, the contractor should be knowledgeable in state and local codes and the installation of an approved backflow device to protect your drinking water supply. He should know and install the latest professional grade products and can help you decide which irrigation or water gardening system will work best for your application.

Questions to ask a Professional Contractor:

  1. Does the contractor have a valid license / certification?
  2. Does he have proof of liability insurance?
  3. What permits will be required?
  4. What type of products does he use and why?
  5. Is after sales service provided?
  6. What are his product warranties?

Some of the considerations to be made for your irrigation system and discussed with you are:

  • Water source and pressure
  • Project size
  • Soil type
  • Planting materials
  • Local weather characteristics

EcoSystems will make certain that the system is installed quickly and with a minimum disruption to the existing foliage. Professionally installed, your new system will operate with efficiency and will be warrantied for workmanship and materials.

Winterization

WARNING! WEAR ANSI APPROVED SAFETY EYE PROTECTION! Extreme care must always be taken when blowing out the system with compressed air. Compressed air can cause serious injury, including serious eye injury, from flying debris. Always wear ANSI approved safety eye protection and do not stand over any irrigation components (pipes, sprinklers and valves) during air blow out. SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY MAY RESULT IF YOU DO NOT PROCEED AS RECOMMENDED!

It is recommended that a qualified licensed contractor perform this type of “Winterization” method. The blow out method utilizes an air compressor with a Cubic Foot per Minute (CFM) rating of 80-100 for any mainline of 2″ or less. These types of compressors can be rented at your local equipment rental yard. The compressor is attached to the mainline via a quick coupler, hose bib or other type connection, which is usually located at the backflow device. To start the “blow out”, shut off the irrigation water supply and, with the compressor valve in the closed position, attach the air compressor hose to the fitting. Activate the station on the controller. Then slowly open the valve on the compressor; this should gradually introduce air into the irrigation system. The blow out pressure should remain below the maximum operating pressure specification of the lowest pressure rated component.

Each station/zone should be activated until no streams of water can be seen exiting the heads, this should take approximately two minutes or more per station/zone. Once the station/zone is completed, you should not continue to blow air through the pipe. Compressed air moving through dry pipes can cause friction, which will create heat and the heat could cause damage.

Once this is completed, disconnect the air compressor and release any air pressure that may be present.
