Rebuilding 1" Ball Valve

Hi,

I have a Zurn 1-850TUXL Ball Valve that feeds the Zurn 975XL Backflow preventer.

I have noticed that one of the white ptfe ball valve bushing is not flush with the valve body instead it's sticking out a little restricting the movement of the ball.

Is there any way I could rebuild the valve by replacing the seat versus buying a new one? New one is $70...

Thanks!

I checked at Zurn. They don't list any replacement parts for valves like that.

No idea, but have you considered calling Zurn? They may replace it for you if it seems like a manufacturing defect.
