    Watts 800M4-QT.

    First time running into a Watts system.

    Two things......

    1) I believe the plastic piece broken from inside the body is the Vent Float??
    What are some site's I can order this piece from, if that is it?

    2) The idiot homeowner cut the PVC off flush at the valve as you can see in the picture; any ideas to inexpensively remove the PVC from the valve?

    Never mind. Just ordered a whole new backflow for customer. Noticed a crack in the water-inlet ($58.00) from American Backflow then $10.00 for the Vent Float, $20.00 more a whole new system, plus there is still the default where the PVC was cut flush.
