G. a ballvalve discharging into a cistern without a silence pipe is noisy. Again, highly reliable measures applied indiscriminately may have substantial cost implications. It is necessary to define and classify the various types of protective measures available as a basis for considering their application. 3), and type 'b', in which the gap may be less and is not easily measurable. overflow t Protective measures against b a c k f l o w the 1999 Regulations Backflow described as flow in a direction contrary to the intended normal direction of flow, within or from a water f i t t i n g - is dealt with comprehensively in the Regulations, Schedule 2, Section 6.
The differing classes of risk merit differing protection measures. Some measures are inherently more reliable than others. 7(a)) between a water outlet and the upper rim of a receiving appliance is likely to be more reliable in the long term than a mechanical device incorporated in the supply line and intended to admit air in the event of a suction in the pipe. The latter may be affected by corrosion and scaling and become ineffective. g. a ballvalve discharging into a cistern without a silence pipe is noisy.
