I recently purchased the 1/2" version for controlling tee'd return pump water feeding my BRS carbon/gfo reactor. It's working fine, allowing for much finer adjustments than the ball valve I was previously using. I was a little concerned in that I noticed an oil on the inside gate valve, apparently to provide smooth operation. I tried to clean this off best I could prior to installing and hoped that it would not have a negative affect on the fish/corals. It has been approximately two weeks now and everything seems fine. I had also purchased a 1" valve almost two years ago for my herbie system and it is still working fine.
Good valve for a good price By Brandon on 11/12/2014

Just make sure you loosen it up a bit before using. They come screwed on so tight that the knobs seize up.

I bought two of these back in January (1" and 3/4"). I took a lot longer than expected to set up my last tank, and while doing so I realized that the 1 inch valve that I received was not working, the handle was able to turn but not open. I took it apart and noticed that the threads in the stem were all worn out.
Luckily, I tried to open it before gluing it. Moreover, it seems to me like they are a bit overpriced. I cannot recommend this product.
Adjusts well. does the job By Daniel on 10/16/2014

For a good price, you can get this fully functional gate valve. Easy to adjust. It isn't as precise as a higher priced valve, but if you can deal with just a little more twitchy tuning, this is the one.
Personally I think it's perfect.

Great for dialing in my herbie ! Wish it was a bit smoother hard to do small adjustments that way I gave it a 4. I would have liked to grab the higher quality gate valve but this works just fine.

I exhausted pretty much every local store trying to find a PVC gate valve to no avail. Everyone said "we can order it" to which I replied "So can I!" So, I did and have to say that it's a great valve.
Before purchasing I spoke with Ryan in Live Chat and discussed my needs and we concluded this would do the job and it certainly does.
Thanks again BRS. (and Ryan of course)

Gate valves are the best choice for "Herbie" style overflows due to the fine control they allow over flow. These gate valves work perfectly. The only disadvantage with these versus the more expensive valves is that they can not be disassembled for service. That being said, I cant imagine EVER wearing one of these out in 99.99% of aquarium applications.
