The assembly shall include two resilient seated shut-offs and two resilient seated test cocks, considered integral to the assembly. Assemblies must be factory backflow tested. The check valve and air inlet valve must be constructed to allow in-line servicing of the assembly. The valve body shall be constructed of bronze. The check, poppet, and bonnet assembly shall be constructed of engineered plastic to protect the valve body from freeze damage. Pressure Vacuum Breaker assemblies shall be installed a minimum of 12" (300mm) above the highest downstream outlet and the highest point in the downstream piping.

The assembly shall be rated to 150 PSI working pressure and water temperature from 32 degrees F to 140 degrees F. The assembly shall meet the specifications of the USC - FCCC & HR Manual. Pressure Vacuum Breaker assemblies shall be FEBCO® Series 765 or prior approved equal.

WARNING!

Irrigation systems supplied by domestic or private potable water systems are considered to be a potential pollution hazard to the water supply. These systems must include protection to prevent possible backflow of irrigation water into the potable water supply.

Federal law requires a proper backflow device to be installed on any watering system to prevent contamination of the supply; whether it be pump or city water. Check your local water authority for installation requirements & codes. In many rural areas; specific requirements for landscape irrigation systems may not be covered in local plumbing codes and/or enforcement may be limited. HOWEVER...limitation in local authority does not alter the basic requirement for protection of the potable water supply.

Warning About Irrigation Systems Supplied By Domestic Potable Water Systems

Sprinkler irrigation systems that are supplied by either domestic or private potable water systems have the potential to be pollution hazards to the water supply. According to federal law, it is required that these systems be protected with the installation of a backflow device to protect against possible back-siphonage into the potable water supply. Sprinkler Warehouse encourages our customers to check their local water authority for installation requirements and codes.

How do I install A Febco 765 PVB?

The Febco 765 backflow preventer should be installed in an area that is accessible for routine testing and maintenance. Refer to local codes for actual requirements in your area. When threading the device inline, place the wrench only on the ball valve hex ends. Keep the sealant off of the interior surfaces of the valve. After installing the device, fill the assembly with water. Then test the valve assembly to ensure that it is operating correctly.

How do I fix a Febco 765-1 PVB?

Sometimes the only problem with a PVB device is a worn-out bonnet and poppet. To replace these parts you must first shut off the bottom valve handle by turning it to the right. Then remove all of the broken plastic parts from inside the backflow device. There should not be any plastic pieces remaining inside the device. It is important not to remove the metal piece at the bottom inside the backflow device because it has a spring below it that may hurt you. Replace the parts you removed with the new bonnet and poppet kit. Finally, you need to place the bell on top of the metal screw and tighten the small nut just enough to hold the metal bell on the device and still rotate by hand with some tension. To avoid having to replace the bonnet and poppet again you should cover the backflow device with an insulated pouch to protect against freezing temperatures.
