    Dichloroacetic Acid does not appear to be approved by the FDA yet.

    All kidding aside, I assume you are talking about a DCVA backflow assembly?
    You know this gets my goat when they are badmouthed, as, with proper testing and service they work wonderful. Do you have your BAT (backflow assembly technician) ticket, Eddie?

    Here we go again. :hammerhead::hammerhead:

    It's all in how your water purveyors classify irrigation being high hazard or low hazard.

    speaking of DCVAs in Washington State, if they changed the building code five-plus years ago, why are they still being used?

    becuase you wet the bed at night..

    Why does new york not require the device to be tested .. Who enforces a proper back flow protection device..

    Lets compare the % of sprinkler systems that have testable back flow devices here compared to over there?

    get over yourself dude
