FEBCO is so confident of the heavy-duty construction and "freeze plug" design of the Series765, it is the only manufacturer to offer a lifetime warranty on the bronze valve body of the 1⁄2"through 11⁄4" models*.In most pressure vacuum breaker designs, the bronze body can split open whenwater inside expands in freezing temperatures. When this happens, the wholeunit must be replaced which can be expensive and downright inconvenient. Butshould an unexpected freeze catch your irrigation system by surprise, the bronze body of the FEBCOSeries 765 will remain intact while less expensive and easy-to-replace internal plastic components aresacrificed to the freeze damage. This "freeze plug" feature means replacing damaged plastic parts at just afraction of the cost of the complete valve.*Only the bronze body of the 1⁄2" through 11⁄4" Series 765s are covered by the lifetime body warranty. Ball valves, test cocks and internal componentsare not considered part of the bronze body. All backflow preventers must be protected against freezing, or damage may occur.
