Winterizing Your Backflow

Below are pictures of how someone can insulate their backflow device for the winter.  You can either use a piece of insulation to lay over the pipe or you can use a towel and trash bag as a quick do-it-yourself project.

It is very important, if using the towel, to wrap and seal it from getting moisture in the bag.  If moisture gets on the towel it is worse than having no insulation at all.

The preferred method is to pick up a piece of insulation from a hardware store and fill the space with insulation.
