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 1" PVC pipe will slip into the Ball valve 1" fitting. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
These have been manufactured by Cepex in Spain. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The 1" Cepex ball valve is 4 7/8" inches long from end to end.
Hope it fits for you!
Have a great day :)
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.
You can use regular primer and cement with the ball valve and schedule 40 PVC. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
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.
Great product By Christopher on 9/8/2016Christopher would recommend this product to a friendHigh quality product at a good price
If you need a ball valve get these. By Doc on 8/30/2016Doc would recommend this product to a friendI can agree with almost all the other reviews. A thing of beauty is a joy forever. I have done lots of plumbing in my lifetime spa, pools residential drains supply lines. Cheap will cost you more in the long run. After I saw the BRS video on return manifolds i decided to buy a Vectra L1 and replace 4 smaller pumps in a 225 gallon system. I purchased 2 1" Cepex for the Display tank returns, a 1/2" for the GFO reactor, another for the calcium reactor and another for the refugium. They are a pleasure to work with and give you the option of a threaded or slip fitting. The handle gives good leverage and a smooth operation. The Home Depot valves I replaced were already difficult to turn after a few years. ( Unfortunately the Vectra L1 was defective and I am waiting on a replacement from Eco Tech.)
Worth every penny By Qtr on 7/5/2016Qtr would recommend this product to a friendThese may seem expensive at first glance but they have excellent constructions and will virtually last forever. They come with interchangeable slip or threaded fittings and the built in unions are so awesome for easy of plumbing assembly and any future tear down for maintenance or plumbing changes.
a bit pricey but... By Mark on 5/10/2016Mark would recommend this product to a friendWorth every penny! Save yourself a headache and get these instead of cheaper ball valves. The unions on each side, both slip + threaded fittings and the ease of turning the valve make it worth the price!
Perfect By Alton on 4/6/2016Alton would recommend this product to a friendWhat makes it so perfect is the fact they send you both slip and threaded fittings. What i did with the spare fittings is put them on a spare pump so if my primary pump needs to be serviced or repaired I can slide my spare into use in a matter of seconds.
Great Product By Alton on 3/22/2016Alton would recommend this product to a friendThe only thing I would add to everyones awesome reviews is get a spare and keep it on hand
Great Quality Valves By Bryan B on 2/27/2016Bryan B would recommend this product to a friendI ordered 3 1" valves for an Emperor Aquatics UV Sterilizer and the quality is outstanding. They are worth the extra money.
a must have for a quality aquarium By Trevor on 1/28/2016Trevor would recommend this product to a friendThe cepex ball valve is the top of the line valve for a good reason. Most standard cheap pvc shut off valves build up and become stuck whereas the cepex will not and is servicable. Also over tome ball valves will loosen up and not be a tight seal where this one comes with an ajustment tool so you can tighten it up over time to keep it working like new.
The Best Valve ! By Xavier on 1/5/2016Xavier would recommend this product to a friendThis is by far the best Valve you can get, no question. Soft turn, long life and will include the slip and threated sides for any job ! 5 Stars !
Very Nice! By Jessica on 12/28/2015Jessica would recommend this product to a friendI purchased the 1.5" and I love the quality and construction of this. So much nicer than the local hardware junk. Buy it you won't regret it.
Simply Awesome By Olliesshop on 12/17/2015Olliesshop would recommend this product to a friendI had been suffering using the normal ball valves I bought at the hardware store, but I finally decided I had enough. They would jerk and couldn't really be adjusted at all. The Cepex valves are awesome. It was relatively easy to install and is very easy to turn/adjust.
Best you can buy By smeac72 on 11/29/2015smeac72 would recommend this product to a friendThis the best ball valve you can buy. It give you slip and threaded unions, for you to plumb anyway you want. It has the easiest shut off and on valve handle than any other ball valve i had used.
The price is a little more other valves but it is way worth it. I just love them.
