This is a reduced pressure principle detector assembly. Production began in 2000 and was discontinued in 2003. In 1997 the Ames Company was purchased by Watts Regulator Company. Ames began marketing the Watts 995RPDA as the Ames 5001SS. For repair information see the Watts model 995RPDA. The mainline assembly is similar to the Ames 4001SS. The by-pass assembly can be either the Ames 4001, Ames 4000B 3/4", or the Ames 4000BM3 3/4".
