I know it's not necessary with a properly drained system...that said it has unions just for this purpose. Also if I needed to take it out for some reason it would be good to know that I can remove it.
Why bother taking it out? If it is properly drained it will be fine over the winter.

PVB winter removal

I had the plumber connect copper unions when installing the backflow; I couldn't remove the PVB today however. I was able to loosen the union nuts on both sides and was able to disconnect on the outlet side but couldn't disconnect on the inlet side. I tried putting a block against the underside of the PVB and hammering to loosen but didn't work. Anyone ever run into this? Thanks
