Description for Watts 0063190


BBFP Dual Check Valves with Intermediate Atmospheric Vent prevent the reverse flow of hot or cold polluted water from entering into the potable water supply.

It consists of a brass body with stainless steel internal parts, integral strainer, and two durable, tight-sealing, rubber check valves.

Designed for continuous pressure, non-health hazard applications in smaller supply lines, such as laboratory equipment, processing tanks, sterilizers, dairy equipment, and specifically for boiler feed lines.

"Do not use this item for any installation or repair of potable water applications. This product does not comply with the "Safe Drinking Water Act," which requires that products meet low-lead standards in order to be used in systems providing water for human consumption (drinking or cooking). This item is for non-potable (non-human consumption) water applications only."

                    Installed this backflow on a boiler that did not have one, which avoids possible contamination with potable water. Will buy this product again. Delivery was prompt.

                                My boiler was leaking from the center relief tube. I replaced the valve and fixed the leak.

                                      this backflow preventer was exactly the correct length without the bulk of the one it replaced. The price was very fair.

                                            We use this product in an RV park on the standpipes that our drinking water comes from. We install them so that we don't have to use the little backflow preventers that don't seem to work well for us.

                                                  A few years ago I purchased a backflow preventer that was a lot more expensive and took longer to receive. This was so much easier and less expensive. I received the product in a reasonable amount of time. Thank you
