Watch: How to eliminate blue water back flow

Fluidmaster has released the new Airgap 6000 in the UK, to deal with the issue of ‘blue water’ prevention.
As the only available adjustable solution, the new cistern fill valve contains all the high-performance features for which Fluidmaster products are consistently requested for, whilst simultaneously complying with BS1212-4 and all required regulations.
Check out this video on how the Airgap Fill Valve works:

The Airgap 6000 range has been fully designed and manufactured by Fluidmaster in the UK, working with water companies, test laboratories and WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme). Specifically engineered to provide a complete and compliant backflow solution, the new generation AUK1 compatible Airgap range is the only height adjustable fill valve which completely eliminates backflow. Other installer-friendly features include: easy ‘no tool’ service; quiet refill with the spiral flow Vortex Generator; unhindered performance at low and high pressures; delayed / non-delayed side and bottom entry; plastic and brass fixings available.
The flexible Airgap 6000 solution has been carefully engineered to fit virtually all cisterns on the market, with quick and simple adjustment options making it an adaptable and valuable addition to every plumber’s kit.
As well as providing a much-needed solution to the challenging issue of ‘blue water’, the Fluidmaster team are eager to share knowledge with the industry about this problem, to ensure awareness of the compliance matter.
Said Andrew Craig, Technical Director: “Our new Airgap 6000 is an important tool in solving the issues resulting from blue water backflow. We have a talented technical design team and our own dedicated testing facilities, which have enabled us to create this next generation product range, to prevent the contamination issues which have previously arisen.
“In addition, the unique adjustable nature of the Airgap 6000 means that ‘one size fits all’; reducing the amount of stock which needs to be carried and ensuring that the right part can be sourced and installed quickly and easily.”
Fluidmaster has invested heavily in a series of marketing initiatives which will launch in early 2020. Full point of sale displays, and literature will also be available.
