Plumbers are expensive gaskets are cheap

I discovered my backflow prevention valve was leaking, and as time went on it just got worse. My wife’s first thought was to call a plumber. My 1st thought was wow that’s going to be an expensive gasket, so I set out looking for a replacement part, with not a whole lot of luck. You can read my blog to see how I fixed my back flow prevention valve without having to order and expensive part or call a plumber. Fixing a back flow prevention valve.

Good job. Make sure drain this for the winter, if ice forms, it will cut the gasket.

Thanks dbray45, I think that is what happened, I live 7200 ft above sea level so we get snow in September and then the next day it will be 80 for the rest of the week. So if I am not paying attention it will freeze and thaw before the plants are ready to go dormant for the winter.

I would definitely recommend that to my boyfriend as well. It looks as good as new so I’m happy enough to save some money. I did the same thing and the plumber did not repair it as he should have.. Thank you!

I admit, I have not been on this blog in a long time, however it was joy to find it again. It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even professionals! I thank you for helping to make people more aware of these issues. Just great stuff as per usual! lawyers in Lagos Nigeria

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
