Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RomoNJ Watts makes it good
As a master plumber, I got to purchase and install products that I can rely on. I've already installed a bunch of this so far. If part gets winterized properly, will last a long long time. Watts is a brand well known and trustworthy

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beinghandyisacurse Won't last through a Northeast winter
I go through 1 of these every winter....even with the drains it wont evacuate every drop of water, expect to be replacing it if you live where it goes below freezing for an extended period. Also it's always out of stock at my local HD, probably because everyone wants to buy a new one in the spring each year. You'd think they would stock up, but no.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Concealed4sure Water valve pressure breaker
I had to replace one that went bad with the same model. Due to the spacing of the pipes it was important to get the same valve if I did not want to create a lot of extra work. The old valve quit working after 3 years. An attempt to conduct maintenance on the old valve was futile.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JP48442 Different Brand in Stores
Drove to two Home Depot stores today trying to buy this product. The product in the stores was by "Wilkins", not "Watts" even though the SKU matched. I found the same Wilkins model $40 less online elsewhere while the Watts version is priced similar to this. I'd be hesitant to order this online as you might get the cheaper brand model.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dontbuy0999 Cap only lasted 1 year
I bought this valve to replace my 10 year old plastic one. Thinking it was metal it would last longer. Wrong, I removed and stored it inside for the winter when I reinstalled it the plastic cap was cracked and sprays water everywhere. I expected it to last more than a year, and repair parts are not available at the local store.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DAGR Not a winter valve
This valve has a great feature for back flow prevention. Has two drains for winter to prevent freeze breaks. I recommend this product if you live in an area where the temperature never drops below freezing. Otherwise you will probably have to replace it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArizonaRon This is a great PVB!
I think this is a great PVB, and it was easy to install. The bronze construction makes it durable, and serviceable for years. Well worth the money.
