I just moved into a rental and have a deck above my backyard. The nearest spigot is below the deck (~10' down). I'd like to run some drip irrigation lines up to the deck to water some plants up there.
Every backflow device seems to say that it has to be installed above the highest level of water in the line.
Is there a way to do this without having to install a backflow device on the deck? Ideally I'd like to have all the drip irrigation connections (psi regulator, backflow, filter, etc.) down by the spigot. I'm just not sure if it's safe to do so.
Any advice (or warnings that I'm an idiot) appreciated.
