Backflow dripping from vent?


I am having a constant drip from the vent of the backflow preventor but the leak stops when running sprinkler system- what could be causing this? Also will leaking backflow cause spike in my water bill?

I'd guess it needs to be rebuilt probably o rings, and since it's after your meter yes it will spike your water bill.

Re: Backflow dripping from vent?


thx for the reply... btw is it ever supposed to leak from the vent or should it always remain dry? I just turned it back on and the leak from the vent is much slower but still leaking.
