    Lost a back flow job to someone else.

    Well, we lost a backflow device installation job to someone else, and here is the result.

    This was for a KFC. The supply is 1", but the backflow that was installed was a 3/4".

    Can you tell by the picture if there might be a problem with this installation.

    Permits have not been pulled here for the vast majority of anything other than new construction since code enforcement started here in 1998, but that is changing. This is one example of why.
