Size doesn't matter, performance at your designed GPM does. You need to look at a pressure loss table/chart for the device you are interested in and see if it's performance at your GPM works for you. Same goes for valves as well.

1" backflow preventer in 1 1/4" mailline

I just realized that I might need 1 1/4" main line (poly pipe). Is it ok to use 1" backflow device since 1 1/4" costs twice as much?
