I just had the Watts 009 inspected today by our water company. It is protecting my water supply from potential backflow from my irrigation system. It passed with flying colors. The inspection guy loves this model.
It was easy to install (my cousin and I did it in about 1.5 hours, and we're rookies). Beacuse it's outside, we used unions, so I'll be able to remove it each autumn to avoid it freezing. Great product!

If you live in an area where there are freezing winter temperatures, then you should remove the check valves and stem for the winter. Otherwize you will have to replace them...which costs about the same as the whole unit. I would have given the unit a 5 if the parts were not so expensive.

I used this to repair a frozen and cracked valve backflow preventer on a sprinkler system a restaurant. They had to have it to prevent contamination of city water. This is the lead free version so it works for all municipalities. Fast shipping and the cheapest price on the web. Even came with a free t-shirt!

Does the job but check your local codes

By Jimmy the plumber

Comments about Watts 3/4" Bronze RPZ (009M3QT):

Your local codes may not allow for this type of Reduced Pressure Zone Assembly. This device is fairly large and needs access all around so plan your installation accordingly. I used this device along with the strainer to separate the potable water from the irrigation water.

      A:

      Yes, definitely. They will occasionally drip or spit a bit of water from the relief drain hole. Be sure you take this into consideration when you choose your installation location.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      009QT does not have strainer – use 777SI Bronze Wye Strainer (Watts, sku 0379081)
      or (more expensive combined):
      Use 009QT-S which includes the strainer noted above

      Answered on 6/4/2012 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      No. The strainer is not in the body of the valve, but is a separate piece.
      They provide the separate wye strainer and a nipple. Install it before the valve.

      A:

      Check local code if a pipe and air gap are required (usually when piped to a drain) .  Normally, the minimum height below the outlet of the rpz is 12".

      I installed mine vertically and it passed inspection with my Water Company.
      I don't know whether it can be installed horizontally

      Answered on 3/30/2012 by Another PexSupply Customer
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      It can be installed either way – read the detailed instructions. We prefer horizontal if space allows.

      Answered on 3/30/2012 by Another PexSupply Customer
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Ideally, this valve would be installed right side up. This valve is
      designed to be installed with the drain hole (unthreaded, open hole in
      center of unit) facing down. This puts the two valves (green vinyl-coated
      butterfly handles) facing forward. The unit could be installed in ANY
      position and still function perfectly; but any moisture venting from the
      unit would run down or over the valve, which isn’t as elegant, functionally,
      as having it drop away from the unit. I have had this unit installed in my
      own radiant heating system for well over a year and the only moisture vented
      was about ¼ cup during the initial system start-up period. One caveat: do
      not install the unit in a way such that water would drip from the vent onto
      pumps, boiler or any electrical equipment.

      Install horizontally with 12" clearance below.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I don't know for certain. But I would bet this needs to be horizontal. If it opens up and drains, you will want it to vent from the bottom into a drain line. That will be much less mess if installed horizontally.

      I am unsure as to what the reference is however I am going to assume this is for the temperature range of a water heater. 125 degrees is the proper Max allowed temperature to prevent scald burns.
