Watts will host a customer webinar, Improving Fire Sprinkler Safety with Backflow Prevention, on Thursday, October 15, at 11:00 am ET. This is the next installment in the Watts® Works Engineer Webinar Series geared specifically to engineers, architects, designers, and specifiers.

There are a wide variety of backflow preventers that support optimal fire sprinkler safety. So, which one's the right fit for the job? During this webinar, our industry subject matter expert will discuss the following.

  • Why and where backflow assemblies are used in fire protection systems and how flood detection systems are used in conjunction with a backflow.
  • Benefits of using single detector checks, double-check assemblies, reduced pressure zone assemblies, and flood detection systems.
  • The different types of backflow preventers used in fire sprinkler applications.
  • The differences between Type I and II detector assemblies and what to look for when selecting a backflow model for fire sprinkler applications to help minimize fire safety risks.
