    Damn Dan, and here I thought you didn't do work in OR. Didn't anyone tell you that ASV's in freeze prone areas is not a good idea? :laugh:

    Must be a PNW thing, I think even Texas has done away with underground DCVA's.

    Not just a PNW thing. But yah, the entire PNW does it. I think it's fairly common practice in a lot of colder climates. And it's certainly nice to have your entire sprinkler system all underground hidden away. Most people here would absolutely FREAK if a contractor installed something above ground at their house. I'd never get paid if I installed an above-ground PVB or RPBA on a residential property. Nobody here would stand for it.

    Our water purveyors haven't allowed it since the mid 1980's and I live in a "cold climate".

    Ok. Smart A$$. I said it was in a "lot" of cold climates. Not EVERY cold climate.

    Some of you guys chose the stupidest things to bicker about, I swear! :rolleyes:

    I wasn't trying to be a smart a$$ and backflow prevention isn't a stupid thing to bicker about.
