  1. We've been having a problem with our water pressure regulator interfering with the hose bibb vacuum breaker backflow preventers that are installed on the water faucets of every campground we visit. We connect the pressure regulator to the hose bibb vacuum breaker so our hose is protected from high water pressure. However this creates back pressure on the vacuum breaker, causing the valve in the vacuum breaker to close, which cuts off the flow of the water to our RV. What can we do to fix this situation, which seems like it would be a very common problem?
  2. I just found out that last year Devil's Tower National Monument actually replaced their threaded water faucets with unthreaded. A camp host said they had problems with backflow contamination of their whole water system. They don't want anyone filling their rv's at the faucets with a water stealer adapter either. A backflow preventer is not enough. For now, they say you can make arrangements with them to fill you at their separate faucet with their hose. Are other National Parks and Forrests doing this too? Is this some kind of national program? Isn't taking our rv water supply drastic? Wouldn't a $7 Home Depot blackflow preventer (a lot cheaper if they buy them in bulk) and a spray bottle of bleach solution be enough? I'm getting ready to make some calls. John Parker
