A Wilkins 720 is physically stronger than a Febco 765 - no plastic bonnet to break.

Thanks for the reply. Reason, I requested for help was that - my current PVB (Wilkins) is leaking, and i am in the process of replacing.

Thanks for the advise (I decided to go with Wilkins only after some google research and your advise)

Secondly ---- How to replace this ?? is it easy ??

It is my understanding that - I need to shutoff the Water Supply to whole House - and Just reaplace the PVB . AM I RIGHT??

Once againg I aprreciate your help.
