What is Backflow or R.P.Z.

Why get my Backflow device tested? Each Backflow device must be tested and certified at the time of installation , then annually once per year of the entire life of device.
Testing the device is important to insure safe clean drinking water, testing the device once a year is to insure the backflow is working properly.
Who can test a Backflow?
Only a C.C.D.I. Inspector can test backflow device‘s. Note: not just a licensed plumber, C.C.D.I. is its own license.
Once a person has become a licensed plumber, they are eligible to apply to take a C.C.D.I. course .
After completing the course, one becomes a C.C.D.I. Inspector.
Backflows that aren’t annually tested once a year can not guarantee clean safe drinking water to its users.
What is Backflow?
Water in a pipe can flow in either direction, Flow is the intended direction of wich the water should flow under normal working conditions. BackFlow is the flow of water in the un-intended direction.
Backflow can happen when unequal pressure causes the flow to be pulled back the opposite way intended, causing non-drinkable substance such as chemicals or contaminants from getting into the drinking system.

Is the 93 Mazda rx7 a traditional flow cooling system or a reverse flow cooling system... Meaning does the spring side of the thermostat face the "block" or the theremostat housing?

Hot water or air rises , water inlet goes in the lower part of the engine and exits at the highest point ,the thermostat control element must face the hot water.

2008 CTS front directional not working?

Try replacing ALL directionals for the side that is not working properly. That fast blink in the back usually means bad bulb, but could also mean bad relay.

Can you elaborate? You say emergency flashers work, but FR directional does not. Does the bulb-in-question light when the E-flashers are going?

Salt water pool cell shows no flow but there is no visible obrstuction in the cell

This could be many things but the first one to check would be the flow switch. This could be salt or calcium build up on the probes. You will need to carefully unscrew the switch so you don't bend the probes. If they are clean, plug the hole in the pipe that you removed it from and turn the system on. Then press the probes together and see if it shows flow. Clean or replace as necessary. When you reinstall, find the arrow on the probe and be sure it points in the direction of the water flow when finished installing.

I just bought my hot tub, it shows ''FLO'' on the panel when i turn it on. I did every thing they say on the panflet but it still doesn`t work. Anything else i should do??

The problem is that the flow switch for your water heater is indicating no flow. Therefore your water heater will not operate. Without proper water flow your heater will burn up. Check that your valves are open. Check that your pump is running. Check that your filters are properly installed and not restricting flow. Check the wiring to your flow switch and make sure the flow switch operating properly (i.e. put a ohm meter across the contacts and see if you have continuity when the switch closes).

No hot water from bosch tankless heater

  1. If the display is blank, verify power to electrical outlet. (120VAC/60Hz properly grounded circuit required). Verify that the heater on/off switch is in the on (I) position.
  2. Verify the fuses in the control unit are good.To access fuses, the control unit must be removed. See BULLETIN TWH-G2-24 Two spare fuses are located inside lower access panel of control unit.
  3. Make sure cold water inlet connection is plumbed to the right side of heater when facing unit.
  4. A minimum of 0.8 gallons per minute (GPM) (3 l/m) is required to activate the heater. A quart container should fill in 20 seconds or less to activate heater.
  5. Clean inlet filter screen per chapter 5.2. of the installation manual.
  6. Inspect the water path for obstructions. Make sure all showerheads, faucet aerators and whole house filters are clear of debris.
  7. The heater activates when the water flow through the unit is at or above the required minimum of 0.8 GPM (3 l/m). A crossover creates back pressure on the water flowing through the heater. Therefore, a higher flow rate than normal is needed to force the heater to activate. To check for a plumbing crossover, shut off the cold water supply feed to the water heater. Then open all of the hot water taps served by the heater. Wait 10 minutes and check for water flow at taps. There should be no water flowing. Any continuous flow of water indicates a crossover is present and must be corrected. Consult a professional plumber for help in correcting a crossover. Failing single lever faucets and mixing valves are common causes of plumbing crossovers.
  8. With the ON/OFF switch turned to OFF (O) position and the power supply cord unplugged, remove theunit's front cover (See Page 5. Fig 3 of installation manual). Check wire connections between the water valve, control unit and electrode set. See chapter 9.2 of installation manual for location of these parts.
