Double Check Valve DZR (9057) FI x FI - Non WRAS
An Introduction To Plasson Double Check Valve DZR Non WRAS
Plasson Double Check Valve DZR Non WRAS products are similar to their WRAS-approved Plasson Double Check DZR counterparts but lack certification from the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS). These valves are part of the Plasson valves range and are designed to prevent the reverse flow of water in plumbing systems. While they may be available at outlets like the Drainage Shop, their non-WRAS status means they haven't been tested and approved as meeting specific UK water supply regulations, particularly in terms of their effect on water quality.
The primary function of all Plasson valves, including the Plasson Double Check Valve DZR Non WRAS options is to prevent backflow in water systems. They are designed to ensure water only flows in one direction, safeguarding against the risk of contamination due to reverse water flow. However, without WRAS approval, their suitability for use in certain public or regulated water supply systems might be limited.
Features And Benefits Of Plasson Double Check Valve DZR Non WRAS
These Plasson Double Check Valve DZR Non WRAS products typically feature a construction of DZR (dezincification-resistant) brass, offering corrosion resistance. They usually have two spring-loaded check mechanisms to effectively prevent backflow. While designed for durability and efficiency, the lack of WRAS certification may raise questions about their compatibility with specific quality standards in some plumbing applications.
The benefits of usingPlasson Double Check Valve DZR Non WRAS products include their potential cost-effectiveness compared to WRAS-approved alternatives. They are still useful in preventing backflow and are suitable for various plumbing setups, including underground drainage. However, their lack of WRAS certification might limit their use in systems where compliance with UK water regulations is mandatory
