They provide an inexpensive and positive method of preventing those difficulties that naturally occur when air is entrained in a water transmission line. In addition, their superior design, workmanship, and stainless steel trim will provide you with a quality valve, one which will give many years of maintenance free and trouble free operation. The capacity and pressure rating of the valve is dependent on the diameter of the precision orifice in the cover. A large inlet connection is required for proper air and water exchange. Inflow Prevention is designed to protect dinking water by protecting your pipelines form contaminated water becoming drawn in and mixing with potable water due to pressure changes.

The revised standard includes Table 5. In summary, concrete tanks that are , gallons or greater in volume have a surface area-to-volume ratio is less than or equal to 0. Admixtures used in the design need to be compliant with STD STD 61 admixes have been readily available in the industry.
As noted: The addition of the criteria for concrete water storage structures is in recognition of the diminishing value of investigations on those with high volumes low surface area-to-volume ratios where admixtures have separately been verified as compliant with this standard and the water storage structure is separately monitored for regulated contaminants including radionuclides.
The standard was revised as proposed in January The subcommittee formed a working group and worked with the California Division of Drinking Water known as CA Department of Public Health when the efforts began to insure there is clarity in the process for insuring compliance with Standard 61 and that the materials used are equally as protective of public health. In addition, the group engaged with California Construction and Industrial Materials Association CALCIMA for their input and expertise on product availability and testing for concrete and individual components from suppliers.
In addition, the group has confirmed when performing soak tests on aggregate materials it is acceptable to NSF to perform tests on the smallest aggregate since it has the highest surface area to volume ratio. Letter from NSF.
