Excellent fine-tuning but needs constant adjustment By Jazmyne on 5/31/2015

I used the spears 1" gate valve to replace the ball valve I originally installed on the siphon to my sump. I've had it on my tank for nearly six weeks. While it's much easier to dial in than the ball valve, I find I have to adjust it every other day or so to keep the water in the overflow at the right level.
For the price, I would expect it to hold its setting better.

I opted for the Slip X Slip version of this valve and was not disappointed. Welds very well (made sure to weld while valve was open - didn't want gunk on the gate itself) and you can just tell that it's built to last. Turning action of the valve is very smooth and you can fine tune with these extremely well. My ONLY wish is that they made a True Union version of these rather than me having to put unions on both sides.

Having gone to a few different hardware stores while deciding what to get for my plumbing, I went for this based one great reviews. The reviews were right, well worth spending the extra money to get a high quality product that will last longer and be easier to use long-term. Don't waste your time or money on ball valves!

This is an extremely well made product and I would recommend this to everyone; even if you used sch 40 for everything else, get this. With this valve, you're able to adjust your water so precisely that it makes live so much easier.

Great for fine tuning By Jack Murray on 7/2/2013

A few months back I purchased one of these valves to mod my skimmer so I could skim most efficiently. I have been using it for around 4 months straight now on my skimmer and I could not be more happy the valve handle turns in a very smooth fashion it does not require you to hold your skimmer in place while turning the valve which is also great. The second you take it out of the box and handle it you understand why it is so pricey it is very sturdy and rugged feeling. I highly reccomend the spears gate valve. Also don't try going out and looking for this valve at your hardware store you are just wasting your time I learned that the hard way.
