Series LF909 Reduced Pressure Zone Assemblies are designed to provide superior cross-connection control protection of the potable water supply in accordance with national plumbing codes and containment control for water authority requirements. This series can be utilized in a variety of installations, including health hazard cross-connections in plumbing systems or for containment at the service line entrance. The LF909 features Lead Free* construction to comply with Lead Free* installation requirements. With its exclusive, design incorporating the “air-in/water-out” principle it provides maximum relief valve discharge during the emergency conditions of combined backsiphonage and backpressure with both checks fouled. Model LF909QT, standardly furnished with full port, resilient seated and Lead Free* bronze ball valve shutoffs. Sizes 3⁄4" and 1" (20 and 25mm) shutoffs have tee handles.

Specifications
A Reduced Pressure Zone Assembly shall be installed at each cross-connection to prevent backsiphonage and backpressure of hazardous materials into the potable water supply. The assembly shall consist of a pressure differential relief valve located in a zone between two positive seating check valves. Backsiphonage protection shall include provision to admit air directly into the reduced pressure zone via a separate channel from the water discharge channel, or directly into the supply pipe via a separate vent. The assembly shall be constructed using Lead Free* bronze materials. The Lead Free* reduced pressure zone assembly shall comply with state codes and standards, where applicable, requiring reduced lead content. The assembly shall include two tightly closing shutoff valves before and after the assembly, test cocks and a protective strainer upstream of the No. 1 shutoff valve. The assembly (specify Model LF909 for temperatures up to 140°F (60°C) or Model LF909HW for temperatures up to 210°F (99°C)) shall meet the requirements of ASSE Std. 1013; AWWA Std. C-511-92 CSA B64.4; FCCCHR of USC Manual Section 10. Listed by IAPMO (UPC). SBCCI (Standard Plumbing code). The assembly shall be a Watts LF909QTS or LF909QTSHW.
