Woodford 50HF Brass Vacuum Breaker.

The Woodford 50HF Vacuum Breaker is a device used to prevent backflow in plumbing systems. Here’s a brief description:

  • Function: The vacuum breaker allows air to enter the water supply line when there’s a sudden drop in pressure, preventing water from flowing back into the system. This helps maintain water quality and prevents contamination.

  • Design: The Woodford 50HF is typically made of brass or other corrosion-resistant materials. It features a spring-loaded check valve that opens to allow air in when needed.

  • Installation: It’s commonly installed on outdoor faucets, hose bibs, or other fixtures where there’s a risk of backflow. When water pressure drops, the vacuum breaker opens to prevent siphoning.

  • Maintenance: Regular inspection and cleaning are essential to ensure proper functioning. If debris accumulates, it can hinder the valve’s operation.
