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.

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
You Get What You Pay For By Kyle on 4/30/2015

These valves are expensive! Trust me, I know with a simple setup and just wanting 4-8 valves, I could have bought at HD or plumbing supply places for significantly less. These valves are fantastic though. I evaluated my desires of not wanting to have to deal with repercussions of using poor quality and cheaper products. I sat on the floor of a local hardware store and literally could not turn a 2" ball valve they had on display (not connected to pipe! could put between my legs and torque, didn't budge) as "one of their best"... it's completely useless if you have to break the plumbing to utilize the valve. Bought quite a few different valves and I have to say these things are no joke. So simple to turn, so easy to dial in, even on the ball valves. And the true Union feature is worth every single penny. These valves are expensive, but you simply get what you pay for; High quality.

Great valve By Patrick on 4/4/2015

I bought a couple of these when I was first building my current setup to try them out. I'm now in the process of replacing the valves that I use most with the cepex valves. Smooth easy to turn action, cleanable, repairable, full Union. Not that much more than buying a union and a valve at Home Depot. Very well built. After a year of use the are still just as easy to open and close.

Don't waste any money buying cheaper valves. These work extremely well and are easy to turn. Others I tried were so tight I decided to return them to Amazon. These work great and should last for years. I found that one of mine was too tight for my taste so I used the simple to use tool to loosen the nut on the ball and now it rotates quite easily.

Don't skimp on cheaper schedule 40 ballvalves that are hard to close and open. These schedule 80 ballvalves are solid, turn easily, and breeze to install.

Great valve that doesn't skimp on quality. Been running my first set for about 9 months and turns today as it did the day I installed it. I've had a few other valves over time from Home Depot and they are nearly impossible to turn and close. I've just ordered 6 more CEPEX to replace the initial local generic valves from a year ago. Won't buy anything else going forward, not worth the hassle!
Well built, but not sensitive enough for my return line By Richard on 9/25/2014
Richard wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I have a 600 GPH Lifereef overflow, and this thing just doesn't allow small enough changes to really dial in the flow that i want. I want the water level in the box to be as far below the teeth as possible (to allow for some room in case a snail or something gets in the overflow line), and high enough so there isn't a waterfall sound in my living room. I have a really, really hard time adjusting this thing to get it to that level. I wish i had gone the extra $10 and gotten a gate valve. If you have a larger tank and are running a higher capacity overflow where a difference of 25 gph doesn't make a big difference, then this is probably a good fit for you. It's really not the valve's fault i don't think, i just should have gone with a Gate Valve for how picky i am.
Great ball valve and a great price By Keith on 9/4/2014

This is a high quality valve at a great price. It actuates very smoothly, just like the $50+ valves out there. It's also very nice that it comes with slip and threaded ends which gives you a lot of flexibility with your setup.

I tried several ball valves in the local hardware stores and they were all ridiculously hard to turn. A couple so much so, I was worried I would end up breaking pipe if I actually used them in my set up. Bought these and was shocked at how easy they were to turn. Definitely worth the extra money.

I 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.

I bought 6 of these on my aquarium. They are very easy to turn compare to ball valve at Lowes or Homepot.
