Does check flow valve #1 go where water flows in and #2 where water goes out to sprinklers? I note that check Flow valve #1 is harder to press in than #2, I believe this is normal. I have a Watts 009M3QT. Ck Valve #1 harder to pull out , #2 just is kind of loose. Currently having all water spray out of bottom of backflow. . Any help appreciated.

For 18 years I have used my irrigation service and this year I decided to try it out myself with service peoples guidance but still paying them to fix any issues and backflow testing.

Thank you
