not only is it installed incorrectly. you can not use that valve on a sprinkler system under upc code see upc 603.2.2/ table 6-2 note 4 not to be subject to operating pressure for more than 12 hours in a 24 hour period the valve that needs to be used is a double check backflow preventer. $$$ i would call his office and tell them they have installed a valve that is not code compliant tell them to install the correct valve.. AT NO ADDITIONAL cost to you. and when they are thru. you will be expecting the test certification report from a 3rd party. at THAT time, you will call the state inspector to have a look see if they give you a hard time. CALL the plumbing inspector for a sprinkler system backflow inspection the inspector will go ballistic...
Thanks Frodo. Much appreciated. As it is today, does that valve actually do anything (even though it is the wrong one)?
it is doing nothing.
