What is required for San Diego? Residential sprinklers

Does anyone know what the code is for San Diego residential sprinklers? I'm not sure what backflow device to use. Thanks.

Find a professional install near you, with the same conditions of landscaping and slopes, if any, and see what they used. For small lawns on flat properties, it would be most common to see antisyphon zone valves, with their built-in vacuum breaker backflow preventers.
