Rain Bird manufactures only the highest quality Anti-Siphon valves. Use the backflow preventer valve in locations where the use of a separate pressure vacuum breaker (PVB) or a double-check valve is required by city codes to protect against backflow. Check your local city codes to determine what type of valves are required.
Anti-Siphon valves are installed above ground and will prevent backflow if properly installed. Anti-Siphon valves should always be installed at least 6" above the highest head on the valve line and should never have another valve installed further down the line from the main valve. Our Rain Bird sprinkler valve also features our patented vacuum breaker–available for automatic or manual applications.

Outfit Your Irrigation System with the Proper Valves to Get Your Install Working Its Best, Long Term
Valves are an essential part of any sprinkler system. They are the link between the "brains" of the system (the controller) and the sprinkler heads to turn the water on and off.
Most automatic sprinkler systems are set up with two types of valves. A brass "gate valve" or "ball valve" is usually located right after the "tee," where the sprinkler system cuts off from the main source of water to the house. This valve, referred to as the "shutoff valve," is used to shut down the sprinkler system for repairs or winterizing without shutting off the water to the entire house. It is recommended that all systems be equipped with a shutoff valve installed in a box for easy access. Some systems also require the use of a backflow preventer.
Anti-siphon valves have a built-in backflow device to prevent possibly contaminated water from flowing backward into the household supply. Both automatic and manual versions are available.
Anti-siphon valves are an inexpensive choice and easy to install and maintain. The built-in anti-siphon backflow device prevents potential contamination of household water supplies from fertilizers and other toxic chemicals which may enter the system.
Why are several valves needed? All systems are limited by a combination of the pressure of the water (psi) and the number of gallons per minute (gpm) available. Each sprinkler uses a certain number of gallons per minute of water. This release of water through the nozzle reduces water pressure to a certain degree while the system is working. For maximum performance, each zone is controlled by one valve and is set up with the correct number of sprinklers so that the psi and gpm capacity of the system is not exceeded.
