    Please help protect our water.
    PVB'S must be 12" above the highest sprinkler head, if not then a RPZ device must be installed.
    All devices must be tested at time of installation and once per year by a certified tester. A copy of the test results must be submitted to your local water authority.
    DCA's are unacceptable for all irrigation systems.
    Devices used for such important testing must be calibrated and if required, certified on a regular basis.

    Thank you for your cooperation

    Utilizing DCA's has resulted in what? C'mon, I hope you have a good knowledge of cross connections and their dangers. If the loss of pressure on the supply side is severe enough, the purveyor will always mandate an extended period of boiling of potable water before consumption. Your agenda promotes a "the sky is falling" mentality. DCA's are a more than adequate solution for a low hazard irrigation system. If a system has been classified otherwise, then by all means comply with local ordinances.
