You should install a PVB at least 6" above the highest head in the system. When we install systems, we always install them at 10-12" just to be sure. Check out the Jess Stryker Page to see the different types of Backflow Preventers

It does not matter what size of pipe you have, you should just have it installed at least 6" above the highest head in the system.
