What is RPZ? It stands for Reduced Pressure Zone. It is a type of backflow prevention device that is used to protect water supplies from contamination. It is the very essence of clean, fresh water vs. undrinkable without health hazards! Backflow preventers are categorized into three groupings, an assembly, a device or a method.
It is good to know that these assemblies have the distinct advantage of being serviceable inline and can be tested & repaired without having to remove an installed assembly. A RPZ device is considered suitable for significant hazard applications, that is, where the consequence of backflow into the water supply would cause significant harm.
This is an issue that every homeowner and business manager must be aware of in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland. At Tom’s Plumbing Inc.
