      The Boosey valve is an integral part of the Boosey bin. Old timers called it 'the boosey'. The valve is held in place by the muffler bearings. When the boosey is tripped, **** flows downhill and the knuten valve activates, resetting the mechanism.

      ... it was plumbed by Ray Charles and his helper Stevie Wonder

            are you thinking a drain bladder Medium Drain Bladder-BC00332 at The Home Depot
            you hook to a hose and put in the drain and then turn on the water so it expands the bladder and then in theory it by water pressure blow the drain blockage open,

            here is a discusion on them if that is what you were thinking, https://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/t12733/

            the only boosey I can find is that of a brass musical instrement,

              It would have a Boosey valve if it was plumbed by Blueman Group of pipefitters.

              I wonder if the o/p meant backup valve?
