Where is the Backflow Assembly located?

Generally, it is located behind the water meter near the street for most residential applications. In commercial applications, there may be internal backflow assemblies near potential hazards in addition to the assembly at the meter. This is to provide an extra level of protection to the water distribution system in case the external assembly at the meter is not functioning.
