4"dcv replacement

Had a fun day today. Some new kind of work for me. Though it was all pretty damn simple stuff. We took on a larger job then usual and replaced a shot 4" back flow assembly . Everything went smooth. Getting the old nuts off was a biatch but that was expected. Just sazalled about half of hem.

I was about to say "how you get it back in there?" until I saw the Vitaulic fittings.

The old device was a Watts 709

The new one we installed is a Wilkins 350 which we had wilkins spec the length for us so we could just plop her right in
