Upon disassembly, one of the check valves snapped or was snapped and one of the springs broke or was broke.

Where can I get the parts for the unit? All of the stores have the pvb units but I don't think it will work with this unit, am I wrong? I can't imagine that the little springs and plastic pieces can cost that much so I would just like to replace the inards of the unit. Also what is used to seal the unit when putting it back together?

I am going to order another unit in the meantime to have a backup incase this happens again.

Febco 3/4" Reduced Pressure Assembly leaking

Ok, I blew out my lines last year and the Febco 3/4" Reduced Pressure Assembly was spewing air out of the bottom relief valve(along with blowing out the lines). This year when I hooked it back up all it does is let the water coming through it clear out the bottom relief valve. Aside from buying a new unit, how can I fix it or is there something else that I need to do to "pressurize the unit"?
