This is a double check assembly. In 1997 the Ames Company was purchased by Watts Regulator Company. Ames began to market the Watts 007 series as their model 2000B. For breakdown information see Watts model 007. The external appearances are slightly different but the internal parts are the same as the 007 series. The 2000B has a bronze body with an in-line modular check design. The checks are removed from the top through a single access cover. The plastic check modules are held in the body by a retainer. Check seats are replaceable and all springs are contained when the cover is removed. Spring tension must be released for a proper repair.


Common repair parts are a very small subset of the 10,000 plus items BAVCO stocks. Please feel free to contact us direct at 800-458-3492 for pricing on items not listed or backflow prevention devices.
