Watts 0802 vent assembley

When I did my start up on my system water started to come out of the top of the backflow preventer. I shut the water off and open the cap on the backflow and the vent float was broken. It looks like a white plastic crown with 4 stems on top. Well one of the stems broke off. I was wondering if that white plastic pc. went down into one of the water lines, and if did will it do any damage? Any help would be great. Thanks Rick

IF it went into a water line you might possibly see a valve stick on or a head not flow properly. It might not hurt anything for years to come. There is really no exact answer to that problem.
