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.

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.

I also had nightmares from the hardware store valves and this one has been phenomenal. Easy to get it set up correctly and no issues.

A litte more money but worth it By Steve on 3/17/2012

This gate valve is a little more expensive than the economy gate valve but to have the ability to take it appart and clean it will make it last that much longer. Gate opens and closes very easily as well. Ditch the cheap SCH 40 ball valves and install one of these.
Strong but Heavy By Michael on 3/12/2012
Michael would recommend this product to a friend
This thing is built like a tank, and probably about as big and heavy as one too. Works well, but make sure you can support it properly or it may put too much pressure on other fittings or bulkheads.

As the other reviewers on here, I'm using this on my overflow. It's well-built, and allows for very precise adjustments.
Dialing in my overflow By Brian on 3/1/2012

I have been pulling my hair out trying to dial in my overflow with the cheaper local hardware store ball valves...this was exactly what I was looking for.
Great valve By Alan on 12/21/2011

I purchased this valve to control the full-siphon leg of my beananimal type overflow system. Valve action is very smooth and it provides much finer control than a ball valve.
Great quality, worth the price! By holder45 on 11/21/2011

Valve works great. Super smooth operation. Very minute adjustments can be made to the gate. Used in siphon overflow ultra-quiet set up. Should last forever.

I purchased this valve for my overflow to the sump down in my basement to set up a Herbie ultra quite drain. Very smooth and well built valve. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
A must have item By Frank on 4/9/2011
Frank would recommend this product to a friend
I purchased this item to replace the ball valve for my overflow to the sump. With the gate valve, I have been able to preciselycontrol my water volume allowing for a full siphon. The quality of the valve is excellent and it comes apart for general cleaning. This item is a must have for all marine aquariums in my opinion.
