The RPZ Backflow is a device that acts like a one way valve. Its job is to allow water to flow into the irrigation system, and not back into the home. Water companies are very protective of their water supply, and do not want contaminated water to enter your home or their water supply.
If the weather is dropping below freezing temperatures you can remove the backflow yourself.
