The Zurn Wilkins ZWFR is designed to prevent freeze damage to backflow preventers installed above ground in geographical regions subject to occasional freezing. The valve senses water temperature and opens at 35°F to discharge near freezing water from the backflow device and draw warmer supply water through the valve. The model ZWFR closes when water temperature reaches 40°F.
