Backflow Disasters

Don't think you need to winterize your backflow? Don't think you might want a professional to perform the winterization?

Below are pictures from a recent cold snap that sadly has cost some customers more than they saved by not having a professional winterize it.

(Click Pictures to enlarge)

WIlkins Double Check Backflow

Customer did not winterize their backflow

Due to the crack in the body of the device, a total replacement was required.

Cost to customer: $430.00

Watts RPZ Backflow

Customer attempted to winterize backflow themselves, and water trapped in the ball valves froze and cracked the #1 shutoff valve

Depending on availability of spare parts, customer might have to completly replace the device or might be able to replace the shutoff only.

Cost to customer: $150-$500

Can you afford to go unprotected?
