    (for the sake of the point suppose the units are kept warm and protected from weedeaters in the clay ground and are always in a wet box

    Can you just change out the nut and washer and slow or stop the rust?

    Any of you seen/used these full composite backflow preventers yet? Local plumber has been using them... they seem to be holding well... nothing to rust and lead free

    Would help to get it out of the ground but different strokes for different parts of the country, I suppose. Around here DCVA are not allowed for irrigation anyways.
