    What kind of price are you guys paying for Febco 860 3/4" backflow devices (and where at)? My local distributor (JDL) kills me on anything copper including backflows. Best I've found online shipped is $160 each.

    Thanks,
    George

    Stinks, doesn't it? Welcome to the wide world of copper and brass prices.

    Our jokes about 1500+ zones are starting to make sense.

    And that doesn't include the $40 install permit, the $25 testing permit, and the $75 test! All for a brand new device.....

    Kind of makes antisyphon valves look good, don't it?

    No test or permit for the test in my area. And rarely does anyone pull a permit. rarely enforced.
