A non-mechanical backflow prevention arrangement of water fittings with an air gap; together with an overflow, the size of which is determined by measure or a vacuum test.
Maximum permissible fluid category against which a Type AG air gap is accepted as adequate backflow protection:
Backflow by back pressure: fluid category 3
Backflow by back siphonage: fluid category 3
Note: overflow and warning pipes shall discharge through or terminate with an air break, the dimensions of which should satisfy a Type AA air gap.
