The type of backflow preventer you have will do that at high pressure, which is why they are installed outdoors. It is not a malfunction. You can see the discharge after each zone valve shuts off.

Febco 825Y the problem?

I have high water pressure (120PSI) and I keep hearing what sounds
like a pressure relief valve blowing off momentarilly. Could the 825 be responsible for this? It is rated for 140 PSI could it need a rebuild? Has anyone experienced this before. It just did it again even with the sprinkler on?
