Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?


For those who have used Cepex ball valves know they are worth every penny.  Most hardware stores carry cheap ball valves that over time get hard to turn and can break pretty easily.  Cepex ball valves will last a lifetime with super smoother operation. We are always recommending the use of unions on plumbing as well.  Unions make everything from plumbing and maintenance easier.  By having a union on each side of the ball valve allows for easy removal of hardware, or isolation of equipment for service.


Cepex Ball Valves operate with smooth precision and last forever.



  • Comes with slip AND thread fittings

  • Smooth long term operation

  • Key for tightening seal

  • Easy breakdown makes cleaning a breeze

  • More professional look than white Schedule 40 PVC

Product Questions

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?
Question by: Louis on Dec 5, 2013 5:51:00 PM
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.

can these valves be used with vinyl tubing.
Question by: phrank on Nov 7, 2013 7:27:00 PM
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 these valves be connected directly to an ABS bulkhead?
Question by: Jose Urban on Jul 4, 2016 3:08:00 AM
No, The Ball valve and Bulkhead are both fitting with accept a piece of PVC pipe to be threaded or glued in. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Where’s it made?
Question by: Ed on Apr 4, 2016 10:27:00 AM
Great question!

Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 8, 2016 10:09:00 AM
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.
Question by: Shannon on Aug 15, 2014 6:42:00 AM
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 :)

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.
Question by: Craig on Nov 11, 2013 9:28:00 AM
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.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Nov 11, 2013 9:28:00 AM
Hi, can i use regular primer and cement to glue the cepex ball valve to regular white PVC?
Question by: Arturo on Apr 21, 2016 12:35:00 PM
Great question!
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.

  • Worth every penny By Qtr on 7/5/2016

    These 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 5/10/2016

    Worth 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 4/6/2016

    What 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 3/22/2016

    The 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 2/27/2016

    I 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 1/28/2016

    The 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 1/5/2016

    This 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 12/28/2015

    I 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 12/17/2015

    I 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 11/29/2015

    This 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.
  • The best I've used By Bob E on 10/11/2015

    When you absolutely, positively need the best ball valve in your setup, this is it. When I built my tank 8 yrs ago, I used some std cheaper valves that were available locally. Now if I really need to turn them, 1/2 of them won't budge. If I need to replace any, these will be the one I use. Adjustable w/tool in pkg, slip or NPT ends in pkg. The feel is proof of quality. I've added some equipment and changed some other parts and am using these. I would be willing to bet, these will turn for years to come..
  • Best ball valve on the market By Shane on 7/31/2015

    I tried a different brand and immediately noticed that the flow restriction was huge. This ball valve gives you closer true 3/4 flow if you get the 3/4 version. Also the quality of this valve is awesome
