At least there are unions

Sweet , I'd bet the DCVA was never tested. Looks like W*M valves, though.
Damn .... what was AI doing in TX.
Look at all that wasted space - I coulda fit at least 4 more valves in there...
I dont put backflows in valves boxes. I put em next to the house with the handles and test kocks facing OUT , like all professionals.
I'm surprised no one suggested to just simply turn the test co ck with some channel locks. I do this all the time in boxes to get easier access
So do I. You can even turn the ball valves on most PVBs so they face out if in the rare instance you need the PVB to mount the opposite direction. I will occasionally even turn the first BV on a febco 825Y RP so that the TC points down, so that it can drain, if the original installer did not install a drain at this point.
Kirl thinks thats too much work.
Would that be like how all professionals use type L or K copper on their backflow installs?
Kiril thinks it is not necessary if there is enough clearance. Do you cry when you see a backflow where the handles aren't in the exact position you want them to be?
I dont cry at all . I laugh ....... at your work.
