Backflow Prevention Cages

Why Backflow Theft Prevention Cages?


Backflow Assembly Theft

Backflow assembly theft comes when you least expect it. Over last few years there has been a rash of commercial irrigation and domestic water backflow preventers stolen for their scrap metal.

While the scrap metal value for the brass and copper contained within these fittings is low, replacement of the preventer assembly can cost as much as $3,000 to $6,000.

Theft also interrupts water service for your property and tenants, as well as the possible water damage created from the water running uncontrolled through the open connection.


A Backflow Cage is the Best Protection from Theft

Backflow cages make it extremely difficult for thieves to gain access to the backflow prevention assembly. The specialized tools and extra time required to break through the backflow cage is an effective deterrent to theft.
