Sewer Popper?

Anybody familiar with the "Sewer Popper"?
http://www.adenus.com/specs/Sewer%20...ec%20Sheet.pdf

They've become the "hot" ticket in our neighborhood, but it seems to be one plumber who is frequently in the neighborhood that's pushing them. They seem cheap enough, but if they're as good as he says, I can't imagine why they aren't installed in all homes.

Do they work? If there's a problem, how do they prevent sewage from backing up into the house?
Installation looks almost idiot proof? What am I missing?
Any code issues?

Thanks for any thoughts and feedback.

I wouldn't jump on the band wagon just yet.

First off, I've never used one, installed one, or tried one, so this is based on only the concept...

I don't really understand how it would work or help unless the popper is installed lower than any of your fixtures. If you have significant flooding in your area and the flooding is over the popper, the flooded waters will likely cause problems too.

It's not a silver bullet, but I'm sure in certain cases it may work just fine.

Thanks for the comments. I struggled with the concept, but I was afraid I was overlooking something. At this point, I believe I can live without it. Thanks again.
