Bingo, at least you know the backflow is working.
That's good stuff, looks like a new install also.
Reinstalled the PVB, the right way (there is even an arrow on the PVB casting) and the rotors all popped up and water was a spraying.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my post!
Mike, there is no well. What I am doing is draining the dirty water from my 30+ aquariums into a 2000 gallon tank. The water is pumped through two of those spin down type filters prior to entering the 2000 gallon tank. The water that collects in the 2000 gallon tank is then pumped by the GT-10 pump up and out to the irrigation system. I thought that if the reason I was changing the aquarium water once a week was to reduce nitrate levels in the aquarium water, I might as well apply that nitrate rich water to the lawn.
Here is a bit of irony for you. The moment I opened one of the valves to test the system, it started to rain...
Thanks again guys!
Mitchgo, just saw your addition about the metals, I will change that.
Thank you sir!
Hmm, I'd be thinking the backflow protection should be installed at the tap into your aquariums. You must like fish!

Plus one on the dielectric unions.
Other than the PVB being backwards, your install looks pretty good, clean.
Flipping that PVB around will have a nice effect on your system working.
