You are correct Steve.... the port on the BFP valve is down stream of the 
check valve on the sprinkler side of the valve so the BFP offers no 
resistance or blockage for the air at this point... really convenient for 
doing what we???re discussing.

I shouldn't really be speaking for John, but I
think he is just saying that his backflow
preventer has a convenient port that he uses to
connect.  I don't think he is saying that the
backflow preventer presents any other problem for
the operation.  I am sure John will let us know if I am correct.
