The last thing you want in your pipes is dirty backwash, especially on exit pipes. You don’t want greywater flowing back into your washing or sewerage coming back up the line into your toilet and bathroom.
A vacuum breaker valve stops this backwash. They have a check valve and an air inlet that is vented to the open air. If the air pressure is greater than the water pressure, the vented chamber opens and breaks the suction, thus preventing the backflow of water.
Reece has sturdy vacuum breaker valves for both 15mm and 20mm pipes.
