Not bad performance; I imagine 25 years ago it would have cost about $1.00

nah prolly the same price and you just get $1 a year out of it.

Production and the aspect of marketing were actually harder back then

the TORO label is on my extender hose for blowouts - the particular hackiness in that photo is the complete absence of any low point drain upstream of the PVB, either indoor or out

Think I had 14 new blow outs this season with now drain before the backflow. Four of the customers would not pay to have one installed.

Falls under the "What were they thinking?" category, what a conundrum (conundrum does not prevent pregnacy or disease; or stupidity).

Like this HO's innovation... is it even legal?

I say NO, but I'll wait for the vageniouses from out of state and N. FL to kick in for clarification since they know everything about Palm Beach County and local code (hint, city water & cross connect to shallow well).
