My sewer guy warns me that many 'flapper'-type valves are prone to
failure - I wonder if this product is a possible solution since it can
be removed and cleaned without needing a manhole in my yard (or digging
up the yard).
It looks like it would be harder to repair / unclog / replace. The flapper
type can clog when they are installed in a vertical pipe. My supply house
says to put them in a horizontal pipe whenever possible.
I've had a flapper type in my basement for 8 years without problems. I did
replace the first one because it had a junky case. The top screwed on with
4 screws and seemed capable of leaking under pressure. What good is a
backflow valve that might leak. The second one had a nice screw on cap with
gasket system. Both use a flapper with no issues to date.
