My original valve had stared to leak a lot, the dripping from the vent was increasing . A rebuild kit for this valve was double the cost of a new replacement valve model BFP-90-1/2 from Pex Universe. Installation was easy with a few common tools and some teflon tape for the threaded parts. A few drops of water escaped from the vent when i turned the water supply back on to my boiler but that is normal and i checked again several days later and the new valve is working perfectly. This backflow preventer appears to be well made and heavily constructed as well if not better than the original. It is solidly built of brass/bronze and a few internal stainless steel components. I opted for a new unit rather than rebuild my old unit after reading about the units that continue to leak after being rebuilt.
While PexUniverse.com reserves the legal right set its own product pricing, some
manufacturers require internet retailers to display a price at or above
manufacturer's established MAP ("Minimum Advertised Price").
Since our price for this product is lower then MAP, the manufacturer does not allow
us to display our lowest price until you place the product in the shopping cart.
This allows us to continue offering our lowest prices while staying consistent with
product manufacturer's policy.
This process does not require you to purchase the product - it can be easily
removed from shopping cart if needed.
We understand that this is an inconvenience and are continually working with
manufacturers to educate them on how MAP affects our customers.
