2 1/2", 3", 4", 6", 8", 10", 12"


This is a double check detector assembly. Production was begun in 1990. It utilizes an assembly similar to the 2000 SS or 2000 SE design double check for the main valve. Several bypass assemblies were used over the years. Check the bypass name tag to be sure which you have. Be sure to notice if you have a SS or SE model, parts will be different. The 2 1/2" SE was discontinued in 2003. The 6" and 8" SE were discontinued in 2005.
