  4. style "3" meters, which come in sizes from....
    1 1/2 "  to 6"
  5. turbine meters are good for a large flow of water and are frequently seen connected to the service for industrial pumps and equipment. this meter will not accurately register a flow rate below..
    5 GPM
  6. Compund meters are used with a water service larger than..
  7. if a perfect vacuum could be created in a piping system, it would be possible to back siphon to a height of..
    10m (33.9m)
  8. The principal causes of back siphonage are..
    undersized piping 2 water main repair or  break in the city or municipal water supply that is lower than a service point 3) lowered water main pressure due to high water withdrawl rate, such as fire fighting or water main flushing 4) reduced supply pressure on the suction side of a booster pump
  9. the principle causes of back pressure are
    • booster pumps
    • potable water connections to boilers and other pressure systems
    • interconnections with another system which operateds at higher pressure

    14 kpa (2 psi)
  12. any PVB that is 3" or larger has...
    two check valves
  13. An AVB is not normally installed more than _____ above floor level
    1.2 m or 5'
  14. what pressure is hot water tanks tested at?
    300 psi
  15. what are the boiling points of water at the folowing pressures 14.7 pounds,, 50 pounds,, 100 pounds
