Curently I am using a rainbird APAS valve for the backflow prevention in my system. Is this product adequate or should I be useing somthing more expensive?

These should work fine as long as you have constant pressure to the valves. These are anti-siphon valves, and you do not need any other source of backflow prevention. Make sure you have them at least 6" above the highest head in the system.

Hope this helps,
