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.

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

  • Q:

    I have an RV Lot with four to six campers. Do I need 4 to 6 separate Preventers or will one be fine on the main line where it branches to the different trailers.

      A:

      You need one for each camper in my opinion. If something goes wrong in any one camper and you get backflow, you can contaminate water supply to other campers.

      The correct way is one for one. Each hose should have its own

  • Q:

    Can this valve be used to let fresh water from the house to keep the hydronic system water full,without contaminating the fresh water?

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The purpose of the valve is to keep fresh water from being contaminated by
      other water such as boiler water so your application is exactly the way the
      valve should be used.

      Answered on 8/26/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Yes, that is exactly what you used it for, to prevent back flow from your system going back into your fresh water supply

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Yes it can, as one would need a backflow on a closed system.

      A:

      I don't see any reason why not. As long as there is nothing but fresh
      water in the flow, no trash.
      Hope that helps.

      A:

      I used mine for a heating system so I don’t get backflow from the heating system into the water supply. I see no reason why you can’t use it for a sump system.

      Answered on 7/26/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Yes you can. It operates on the same principle as with a boiler -
      preventing contaminated water from entering your water supply. However, you
      should consider using a 3/4 inch supply because the 1/2 inch supply may not
      provide enough vacuum to lift the water from the sump well.
