How to open systems with a PVB
Tools = Flathead Screwdriver & Channel-lock
Locate the PVB backflow (Copper device located against wall on the outside of the house). Ensure the test cock valves ( 2 little bleeder screws) are closed (perpendicular to opening). Then Locate ball valves (one on the side closest to the house and one on the side going to the irrigation system). Both should start in the closed position (perpendicular to the pipe). Ensure blow-out point is tight, usually a plug after (bell looking thing), the bonnet. Now you can open the Shutoff valve (slowly) to turn the water on (usually inside house).
