An anti-syphon valve is a device used in plumbing and irrigation systems to prevent the backflow of water or other liquids from the system into the main water supply. When a faucet or other water outlet is turned off, a vacuum can form in the pipes, causing water to be siphoned back into the main supply. This can cause contamination of the water supply, leading to health hazards.

An anti-syphon valve works by allowing air to enter the system to break the vacuum and prevent the siphoning effect. It is typically installed in a vertical position, with the valve opening facing upwards. When water flows through the valve, the pressure pushes the valve open, allowing water to flow through. When the water is turned off, the valve closes, and the air is allowed to enter the system, preventing syphoning.

These are available in 13mm (16mm external) and 25mm (32mm external)

Irrigation fittings are an essential component of hydroponic systems, as they connect various parts of the system and allow for the flow of nutrient solution. Fittings may include connectors, elbows, tees, valves, and tubing, among others. The type of fitting used may depend on the specific needs of the system, such as the size and configuration of the grow space, the type of plants being grown, and the desired flow rate and pressure of the nutrient solution. Factors such as durability, compatibility with different materials, and ease of installation should be considered when selecting irrigation fittings for a hydroponic system. Proper installation and maintenance of irrigation fittings is important to prevent leaks or blockages in the system and ensure optimal plant health.
