The new Taco brass boiler feed and dual check backflow preventer with atmospheric vent is available as a combination unit, or the boiler feed valve and backflow preventer can each be purchased individually.

This unit provides installers with a convenient, complete solution for new systems or as a seamless replacement for units in the field.
