What is this called and how much does it cost?


Does it come in one piece... sorry for being such an amateur! If it's not a valve and not a head, I don't exactly know what to ask for.

It might. But the 4 valves shown are separate controls.


What is it attached to ... an irrigation system?

Some people also call them backflow preventers.

It's a pressure vacuum breaker or PVB.

More specific, it's a FEBCO 720-1. (-1 indicates 1 inch pipe)

I'd expect to spend somewhere between $75-$100 for it depending where you buy it.

There are other MFGs of similar PVBs. Zurn Wilkins comes to mind.
