Works great, but... By Greg on 10/22/2012
Greg would recommend this product to a friend
Works as advertised, but the screw that holds the handle on rusts like crazy if it gets salt spray on it. I doubt it's going anywhere, but it's something to think about.

Can't even compare the quality of these valves to something you would pick up at the local hardware store. The last thing I want to worry about with my tank is leaky sub-par plumbing, Thanks to BRS for keeping quality items like this in stock and priced fair!

This ball valve is extremely easy to add into your water line. Just push the water line in and that's it. Very easy and seals water tight. The valve is also easy to turn and can tell the whole thing is great quality.
LOVE. MUR-LOK. FITTINGS. By Chuck on 8/15/2012
Chuck would recommend this product to a friend
I have to admit, taking a few minutes to review plumbing fittings would normally seem like a waste of time.... but these Mur-lok fittings are so above and beyond what most local retailers carry (HD or the other one - L****) that they really deserve some attention. These valves, and all the other Mur-lok fittings I've bought from BRS, are super heavy duty, have double seals, and when put side-by-side with something from the local hardware store it just makes the others look like toys. For basically the exact same price (within a few cents), or even cheaper than what the local stores carry, I'll be buying Mur-lok fittings for every project -- not just the reef tank ones. Super impressed with the quality of these, and not surprised that this is another excellent item available from BRS.

Leaky out of the box... By Lucas on 7/5/2012
Lucas wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
This is a well-built, nice fitting with a solid, reliable feel to it. Unfortunately, it leaked from the union between on how fitting and the valve body itself, where there is a small seal. Wrenching didn't do anything. A touch of cyanoacrylate seems to have patched the problem, but that's only temporary. I'll have to get another one or bypass the valve completely.
solid little valve By Robert on 6/2/2012
Robert would recommend this product to a friend
This ball valve is very easy to install, and also allows for a surprisingly precise adjustment for my gfo reactor. It has a nice solid feel to the adjustment as well.
Excellent ball valve By Gerardo on 5/25/2012

This ball valve is easy to adjust and they stay where you place them, stay away from Home Depot brand they are cheap and very hard to adjust.

Better than the valves in my house By Mark on 2/17/2012
Mark would recommend this product to a friend
I have had one of these valves in use on a system with over 90 PSI for 14 months now with no problems. The action is solid and quality. I do try to hold the feed line when I turn the valve, but my installation is not permanently mounted so I am concerned about pulling the tubing out accidentally. To date no problems and I shut off the valve regularly to isolate my RO/DI filter from the high city water pressure. I have ball valves in my home that don’t perform as reliably.
Nice size By Ethan on 2/9/2012
Ethan would recommend this product to a friend
This ball valve operates smoothly to allow for fine adjustments to water flow. I have this on the dual BRS reactor. The size is also not much larger than 1/2 in tubing making installation convenient for under tank cabinets.
Great for BRS's reactors. By Jeff on 2/8/2012
Jeff would recommend this product to a friend
This is the best way (yet) to dial in the perfect ammount of flow for your BRS reactor ( or any other reactor that this would work on). The push connect fitting ensures no leaks and that setting it up is a breeze. I would reccomend this product to a friend.

Smooth as silk By Carveth on 12/1/2011
Carveth would recommend this product to a friend
They operate smooth as silk. Twist on Twist off. Installation is a snap --- well actually a simple push. I combined with two 90 elbows and a "T" having one valve coming off my saltwater replacement tank and one on my RO/IO tank. A line is routed to a float valve in my sump. I can open one valve to top off with saltwater after a water change or leave the RO/IO on to replace evaporation.
Nice By Jim on 3/29/2011

These valves came with carbon reactor.I like them so much I order several more.
Small,smooth operation and act as a union.
Superior product to LHS products! By Brian on 2/24/2011
Brian would recommend this product to a friend
I had been using a ball valve I purchased at my local hardware store (LHS), and always had issues with it (leaks, wouldn't shut off, etc). I purchased this product and I couldn't be happier! Half the price and twice the product!
Talk about an upgrade! By R Dubs on 2/9/2011
R Dubs would recommend this product to a friend
I bought this valve to replace a white/blue JG valve that failed in the on position after 8 months of use. The open/close mechanism on this valve is so much more fluid. Easy open, easy close. I can tell this is going to last a long, long time!
Best Push Connect Valves! By Rob on 1/10/2011
Rob would recommend this product to a friend
I got my first exposure to these valves when I ordered my RO/DI 5 Stage system about 9 months ago. I had never heard of the maker before, but I hate to buy anything else now. The valves you buy at big box stores or even the original JG fittings feel so cheap compared to the construction and action of these little ball valves. I have them in my RO plumbing as well as using some in applications with salt water running through them and 9 months later they all open and shut like the day I got them. Another great BRS product!
You'll need this even if you think you don't.. By Alexey on 10/1/2010
Alexey would recommend this product to a friend
If someone needs to use the sink while you're working on the RO system, this valve is indispensable!
So you've shut off the water at the sink, taken out the RO system, and whoops! Someone needs to use the sink. What to do? Drop one of these guys on the incoming 1/4" line that you just cut and you're good to go!
better than anything at local hardware stores By Scott on 9/12/2010
Scott would recommend this product to a friend
I got sick of my quick connect valves failing after a couple of weeks so I ordered this one from BRS. As soon as I opened it you could tell that it was constructed better than the cheapo ones available locally at HD. It hasn't leaked a drop and I couldn't be happier.
Easy to Use By Mike R. on 8/28/2010
Mike R. would recommend this product to a friend
I bought a bunch of the quick connect fittings to set up a Jumbo and single reactor for my 150 gallon tank.
The push connects are real easy to use and can be used for other things than just RO system.
The fittings are nice and small and do the job.
More is better!!! By Dave Y on 8/13/2010

It’s very handy to have a spare valve around.
I’ll bet you’ll be able to find a creative use for 1, 2 or more!

This is a great quality product at a great price. I purchased this valve to use on my product line to close and open as needed. Works great. Thanks BRS!
