    Has anyone or know of a good anti-sphioning device or backflow device that can used on a 5/8" garden hose.

    Probably a vacuum breaker you are speaking of.
    Watts is a good brand, as pictured.

    If this is going to be used on a irrigation system TN. requires a RPZ.

    I always wondered what a RPZ would look like on the end of a garden hose...

    I have seen a garden hose used for POC.

    Did it have a RPZ on the end or any type of backflow protection?

    No it was on a older house without a vacuum breaker on the hose bib. The hose went in ground to a bed zone.
