great valve, but call for sizing By Hugo on 3/17/2012

i have .75" flexible tubing in my sump, and figured this would fit. The slip ends themselves are actually 1" and 1/16" inches, my .75" tubing wont fit. The valve: Inner diameter is .75", outer slip fit diameter 1.0625 (1" and 1/16"), end to end is 6.25" and at the widest part it is 3.375" (3" and 3/8"). Great looking valve, great build quality, I hope my review saves some people an unexpected trip to the plumbing store.
Quality is worth the price By Thomas on 3/13/2012

My initial return had a swing check valve. when the pump turned off a huge water hammer developed that would take several minutes to resolve. I replaced the swing check with this valve and no more water hammers. The design and quality is so much better than a swing check.

I had to many problems with my water siphoning back into my sump, so i looked into there check valve and even tho it was pricey well worth every penny! very heavy duty also.
pricey but very nice By Craig on 8/19/2011

This is an extremely solidly built part. The walls are strong. The cap is beefy, seals well, and is easy to remove. The weighted stopper is easy to remove with just your fingers. (While clean anyway, haven't had it long enough to say how easy it is to remove when dirty.)
It IS definitely rather expensive, but I was willing to pay it for the extra piece of mind. I've had trouble with siphon break holes stopping up with salt creep to not have one of these.

The check valve is very well made and has minimal back pressure. I like the fact I can see and hear the weight come down when the water tries to siphon into the sump. Also works great as an opening to prime the pump.

Was a little worried that it might be overkill but this wye valve is well worth the money. Superb construction coupled with ease of cleaning makes this valve a great investment. I am definitely going to plan to include one on every subsequent build! Once again BRS providing quality equipment at a great price!

Although it is a bit expensive, this check valve works well and is easy to clean. You cannot rely exclusively on a check valve to prevent back flow into your sump - still use a siphon break as well for safety. What this check valve does prevent is the displacement of air from the return piping back into the tank when ever the return pump is turned off and on.
What a Check Valve! By TERRI on 8/19/2010

When looking at check valves, I found this one to be what I was looking for. To perform its function, durability and ease of use/cleaning. It meets my needs and expectations and I am impressed! Although the price is definitely hefty, other check valves can't hold a candle to this one! After checking several other specialty websites for this check valve, BRS was the cheapest I found! I really don't think you will be disappointed in this even with the hefty price! BRS has again offered an outstanding product at a very good price! Thanks guys!!
