It's all in the name.

Anti-syphon valves prevents syphoning (when contents of a syringe, by the force of gravity, empties into a vein for example).

Anti-reflux prevents back flow of one infusion line into an other infusion line (only needed if several infusions are going down the same cannula).

What is an anti syphon valve?

An anti-siphon (or, anti-syphon) valve is a device that prevents liquid from returning to the line from which it came if a siphon action occurs. An anti-siphon device is frequently required on outdoor irrigation systems to prevent possibly contaminated water to be drawn back into the water supply lines if water pressure decreases in the water supply line. An anti-siphon device is not the same as a check valve. A check valve allows flow in only one direction, and requires pressure to function. An anti-siphon valve opens to the atmosphere when there is reduced or no pressure in the line.

How does the anti syphon valve work?

An anti-siphon valve prevents backflow of water into the drinking water supply. It is typically installed above the highest point in the system and uses a one-way valve to allow water to flow in only one direction, preventing contamination. When water pressure drops, the valve closes to prevent backflow.


How do you replace anti syphon valve on hose bib?

With the ones I've seen, they simply screw on to the bib just like a hose would. So you just unscrew the old one and screw on the new one. In Texas with homes built in the 1980's forward, you usually cannot remove just the anti syphon device because the commercial plumbers remove or break off the set screw that comes with the assembly that would allow for removal. I had to have a plumber remove the hose bib (simple process) and then replace it along with a new anti syphon valve. This put an end to the annoying dribbling of water. Cost me $65. I'll do it myself the next time as it is actually quite simple now that I know how to do it. I will install it with a syphon valve that I can remove.
