Maximum Relief Valve Discharge Rates
Air Gap Assembly will capture and evacuate light water discharge from the Relief Valve caused by daily fluctuation in system/supply pressure. An Air Gap Assembly will NOT capture and evacuate the Maximum Relief Valve Discharge Rate caused by catastrophic valve or system failure. An auxiliary drain (separate and independent of the Air Gap Assembly) is REQUIRED and MUST be properly sized for the Maximum Relief Valve Discharge Rate. Backflow Direct shall not be responsible for any special, consequential or incidental damages, including without limitation, repair costs, lost profits, property damage, or any other costs resulting from labor charges, delays, vandalism, negligence, fouling caused by foreign material, adverse water conditions or any other circumstances, caused by lack of auxiliary drain, location of auxiliary drain or undersized auxiliary drain.
