Who dictates water quality regs in your market? Oviviously, you don't subscribe to any rules and regs we have out west.

Memo to Cactus Hug ~ Washington State changed their code several years ago to the same "toxic backflow" requirements seen in many other states. No more DCVAs allowed.

So, we're on the same page? The 'but" is why DCVAs are not permitted in your market, even though USC approves them?

They are not approved for irrigation and haven't been since at least 1986.

Unless something has changed since the last time I looked, USC does not approve DCVA's for health hazard applications, which IMO irrigation is, even if some jurisdictions don't think so.

On the issue of RPZA's, some of the Watts assemblies can be installed in a pit, however they also note it is not recommended and to refer to local codes.

Example.

It is generally recommended that back flow preventers never be placed in pits unless absolutely necessary and then only when approved by local codes. In such cases, a modified pit installation is preferred.
