Protect potable water with this diverse product family

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

The VaultSafe product line (photo) is designed to protect potable water systems from contaminated floodwaters, freezing temperatures and intentional harmful contamination. The VaultSafe family consists of the FloodSafe inflow preventer, the FrostSafe air damper and the VentSafe vent-pipe security cage. The FloodSafe prevents contaminated water from passing through, thus preventing it from entering the air valve outlet and compromising the potable water system with its dual chambers and float checks. The FrostSafe minimizes the thermal exchange of cold and warm air in and out of a vault to help prevent freezing with a bi-directional hingeless disc and wafer design. The VentSafe safeguards vent pipes against the hazards of nesting animals and intentional harmful activities because of its hemispherical screened security cage. Furthermore, this company’s AWWA C514 inflow preventers can be applied to new or existing air valves and reservoir vents to substantially mitigate other threats to potable water systems. — Val-Matic Valve & Manufacturing Corp., Elmhurst, Ill.
