How to blow out or drain sprinkler system before freeze
A blow-off valve BOV , dump valve or compressor bypass valve CBV , is a pressure release system present in most turbocharged engines. Its main purpose is to take the load off the turbocharger when the throttle is suddenly closed. A compressor bypass valve CBV , also known as a pressure relief valve or diverter valve, is a manifold vacuum -actuated valve designed to release pressure in the intake system of a turbocharged vehicle when the throttle is lifted or closed. This air pressure is re-circulated back into the non-pressurized end of the intake before the turbo but after the mass airflow sensor. A blowoff valve, sometimes "hooter valve" or BOV performs the same task but releases the air into the atmosphere instead of recirculating it. This type of valve is typically an aftermarket modification. The blowoff action produces a range of distinctive hissing sounds, depending on the exit design.
