2. Description of function
The check valve protected the service pipe.
Spring loaded check valves have a moving seal disc which is
lifted off the seat by a greater or lesser amount depending on
the flow rate through the valve. If the flow falls towards zero,
then the spring pushes the disc back onto the seat and seals
the waterway.
To ensure continuing correct function it is recommended that
check valves be regularly checked and maintained (as speci-
fied in EN 1717).

7. Assembly
7.1. Installations Guidelines
• In a drinking water supply the check valves are fitted
immediately after the water meter.
- This position ensures optimum protection for the drin-
king water supply.
• Install in horizontal pipework with test plugs directed down-
- This position ensures optimum protection efficiency.
- This position is best for testing the valve
• Shut off valves should be fitted on each side of the check
- Shut off valves enables fast testing
• The installation location should be protected against frost
and be easily accessible
7.2. Assembly instructions
1. Thoroughly flush pipework
2. Close shutoff valve on inlet
3. Release pressure on outlet side (e.g. through water tap)
4. Close shutoff valve on outlet
5. Fit check valve for example between water meter and
pressure reducing valve, filter or filter combination
• Note flow direction
• Install without tension or bending stresses
6. Slowly open shut off valves on inlet and outlet

8. Maintenance

8.1. Inspection
8.1.1. Check valve
Interval: once a year
1. Close shutoff valve on inlet
2. Open test valve
• Until the pressure is released, some water will flow out
of the test valve. After a short period of time the water
flow should stop. If the water continues to drip or run,
then the check valve must be replaced - see mainte-
nance of check valve
3. Close test valve again
4. Slowly open shutoff valve on inlet
