A backflow preventer valve is designed to prevent the water in your main water supply lines from flowing in a reverse direction. The valve will distribute the sanitary water from the main supply pipes to the water lines beneath your foundation, ensuring that hygienic and pure water reaches your home.DK Hardware offers a wide variety of backflow preventers to provide a safe and secure potable water supply. The Watts Rebuilding Kit prevents the reverse flow of polluted water from entering the potable water supply due to back-siphonage. It consists of a disk, disc float, a bonnet, and an O-ring. It is ideal for low flow, non-continuous hot or cold water health hazard installations such as laboratory equipment. It is most commonly used in commercial and industrial applications.
