Restored: Reduced Pressure Backflow Assembly

The Reduced Pressure Backflow Assembly (RPBA) is made up of two independently-acting spring-loaded check valves separated by a spring-loaded differential pressure relief valve, two shut-off valves and four test cocks.  The reduced pressure backflow assembly is intended to be installed on service connections where what could backflow would pose a significant risk to health.

Diagrams of reduced pressure backflow assemblies are illustrated below:
