    Default What is this please?

    Hello all,

    At risk of appearing to be an amateur (which I am) can someone please tell me what I have here. It's on the side of a higher end home and each home in the neighborhood has one. I'd like to be able to properly identify one of these (and its function) the next time I come across one. I would appreciate the help.

    That is a backflow prevention assembly.

    It is connected to the lawn sprinkler.

    That is an RPZ backflow prevention device, which needs to be certified yearly. Since it is outside the paperwork (certifications) should be hanging inside near the main shut off to that system.
