Premium valves for premium reefs By John on 5/12/2014John would recommend this product to a friendI would never recommend skimping on the valves.
These allow easy removal for replacing and maintaining pumps and reactors. O-Rings are available at most local hardware and the tool required for accessing the ball and seals is included.
Top quality product.
Easy to turn By NIck on 5/10/2014NIck would recommend this product to a friendI bought 6 of these on my aquarium. They are very easy to turn compare to ball valve at Lowes or Homepot.
Monster Valves! By Bryan on 4/8/2014Bryan would recommend this product to a friendWow, these things look amazing...my only problem is that I ordered two of them, got billed for two, packing slip shows two packed, but only one in the box. My last couple of orders with BRS have had some issues. Hopefully they will come through and remedy the problem. Five stars for product, one star for BRS shipping
Yes! By Cdbstl76 on 3/15/2014Cdbstl76 would recommend this product to a friendThat's the answer to the question, "is it worth the money?" So easy to turn!!!
simply not a better valve for the money By shane on 2/13/2014shane would recommend this product to a friendthis is a heavily built valve and comes with both slip and threaded ends . You simply screw in the one you choose to use. I doubt you'll ever need to repair this during its lifespan. Comparable spears valve is over 50% more.
Great buy By Corey on 12/28/2013Corey would recommend this product to a friendI've bought a couple of the 1" valves and I have no complaints so far. I like that it comes with both slip and thread adapters. Valves were a little hard to turn at first but after a couple times, they turned with ease.
Works as its supposed to By Trojan on 11/22/2013Trojan would recommend this product to a friendI purchased these to put to gether a salt water mixing station. I havent had any issues withese models in the past.
Professional Valve By MICHAELO on 9/30/2013MICHAELO would recommend this product to a friendThese babies do not mess around and you get slip and threaded options together, you can't beat that. They are well built and will last a lifetime. They are also very easy to turn unlike other valves, quality pvc. If you are serious about your plumbing I highly recommend these. When you get them you will see why!
Solid Valve By Robert on 9/22/2013Robert would recommend this product to a friendI have a ton of these throughout my aquarium plumbing. They serve double duty as a valve and a union. As a bonus you get both slip and thread for the ultimate in flexibility.
Very high quality product By Timothy on 9/3/2013Timothy would recommend this product to a friendI purchased a bunch of these in 1" and 1.5" to replace some older Asahi valves on my 210. These Cepex valves are top quality and the fact that thet have both the threaded and slip included is a bonus. Solid construction and smooth lever operation.True union valves are worth the extra money. Thank you BRS for highlighting this product- great value and pricing.
a great unit By Tim on 7/14/2013Tim would recommend this product to a friendThese cost a lot more then the generic white pvc shut offs but the quality and options are awesome. I use them on all my tanks.
Previously Asked Questions
by phrank on November 7, 2013, @7:27 PM
can these valves be used with vinyl tubing.
Bulk Reef Supply Vinyl tubing cannot be connected directly but you could also pick up some barb fittings to attach to each side of the valve that would then allow you to connect a flexible tubing.

Can I use the Cepex ball valves with Schedule 40 PVC? My tank is already drilled for the Schedule 40 bulkheads so I'm already stuck with that kind of PVC. Just wanted to be sure before I purchased this for my plumbing.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Craig,
Schedule 80 and 40 pvc are compatible. All the plumbing will have the corresponding nominal sizes, so a 1" Sch80 Cepex ball valve for example will fit 1" Sch40 pipe just fine.

Can you please tell me the length of the 1" valve, from end to end? Need to make sure there's room to add one of these before building my stand.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Shannon,
The 1" Cepex ball valve is 4 7/8" inches long from end to end.
Hope it fits for you!
Have a great day :)

I am setting up a 240 gallon reef tank it's 8 feet long with an overflow on each end 3/4 supply and 1 inch return I wanted to use these ball valves but wasn't sure if they can work with schedule 40 or if I have to plumb the whole setup in schedule 80? Also I wanted to get the wye check valve in 3/4 in for supply but it looks like it has slip fittings how can I install the check valve inline with the solid piping?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Louis,
Sch40 and sch80 have the same size fittings, etc and are interchangeable so no worries there. The slip fittings on the check valve are the same diameter as the pipe, so they can be connected with unions or really any other fititng that would connect two pieces of pipe.
The golden rule of plumbing is that every job takes three trips to the store. While this can be frustrating locally it can be much worse when shopping online. Being short a fitting or two can delay a plumbing project for days. Here are some quick tips to avoid this.
- Plan your plumbing on paper
- Don't skimp on unions. Unions allow for easy breakdown and maintenance as well as remove the need for precise elbow placement. Use them as often as possible.
- When in doubt order extra. We happily accept returns for a full refund (less shipping) on all unused fittings within one month of purchase. A few extra bucks in return shipping is less frustrating than a project delay.
