Below Backflow Preventer Vault
The Below-Ground Backflow Preventer Vault prevents potential cross-connection hazards that are found in potable, fire protection, irrigation, and industrial water systems. Codes require a backflow prevention device where these hazards exist.
Pre-installing the backflow preventer in a highly secure precast concrete vault provides quick installation and long-term protection for this critical component, while simultaneously protecting the public water supply.
A multitude of configurations and sizes are available – including fully watertight models for locations with high water tables.
Each meter, including its sensitive electronics, is housed in a highly durable precast concrete vault, then 100% leak tested in a National Precast Concrete Association Certified Plant.
