Any opinions on ease/cost of service on backflow preventers? Looking at 2" reduced pressure zone valves - watts 009 vs apolllo 200series.

Are the single access watts more difficult/expensive to service during testing? Seems like it may be easier to service one check at a time on the appollo valves as needed.

Any reliability issues? Either more resistant to silt?

Thanks

Personally, I like the watts and can get the parts easily and testing is not a problem. As far as the apollo I have not used one yet. Just installed a wilkins last week. I took the wilkins apart and really liked how simple it will be to repair in the future. Just not sure how readily available the parts are.

Repair parts are easy to get...At least in my area.
