    It's an RPZ and underground is not where you want them

    Suffock County, Cape Cod and Colorado Springs permit RPs underground.

    I understand that.. but irritation has some personal hate about anything being below ground.

    rp's are allowed underground here too. As long as proper drainage is installed.. Meaning a physical drain below the elevation of the back flow assembly.

    I'm with Mitch on the below ground stuff. If proper drainage is provided and a large box with good clearance then better below ground. Too bad for BF inspectors having to get on their knees and bend over a little.

    Sure, except that would have to be a deep drain to daylight, sumps don't cut it with RPs.

    12" of gravel and 6" gap from the gravel to the RP. Works for me.
