Woodford 34HA-BR Vacuum Breaker In Chrome Finish For Models 20, 25, 60, and 65.

The Woodford 34HA Chrome vacuum breaker is a crucial component used in outdoor faucets (hose bibs) to prevent backflow of water into the potable water supply. Let’s explore its features:

  1. Function:

    • The vacuum breaker ensures that water flows in one direction only, preventing contamination of the drinking water system.
    • It prevents backflow, which can occur due to sudden pressure drops (e.g., burst water mains or plumbing issues).
  2. Features of the Woodford 34HA Chrome Vacuum Breaker:

    • Material: The vacuum breaker is made of durable brass with a chrome finish for corrosion resistance and an attractive appearance.
    • Hose Connection: It attaches to the hose bib or faucet spout.
    • Spring-Loaded Valve: Inside the vacuum breaker, there’s a spring-loaded valve that allows water to flow out but prevents it from flowing back in.
    • Atmospheric Vent: When water pressure drops, the spring opens, allowing air to enter and break the vacuum, preventing backflow.
  3. Installation:

    • Screw the vacuum breaker onto the faucet spout.
    • Attach the hose to the other end.
    • Proper installation ensures that water flows out freely but cannot siphon back into the water supply.
  4. Maintenance:

    • Regularly inspect and clean the vacuum breaker to ensure proper functioning.
    • Remove any debris or mineral buildup that could obstruct the valve.
    • Replace the vacuum breaker if it’s damaged or leaking.
