These are high quality, well made check valves. However, any check valve will eventually get mineral deposits and with time may fail. Here is any easy solution so you never have this problem. I have two check valves, one for each of my pumps. Since this is a union, it unscrews easily and the valve can be removed in a few minutes. ( Unless you leave it in for a very long time). Every 4-6 months, remove the valve part of the unit and replace it with your spare. Then soak the one you removed in vinegar or whatever you use to remove mineral deposits for 24 hours. Your soaked valve will be as good as new and ready to put back in the system in 4-6 months. This has worked very well for me and is an inexpensive solution to check valve failure. So bottom line, purchase two union/check valves for every one you need and keep one clean and ready to replace the one in your system.. Since they are clear you can see when to change them. No need to wait for failure.
Doesn't work. By DivingTheWorld on 2/17/2015

This check valve uses solid construction and I really like how it has the two unions which makes installation much easier. The problem I have is that it just doesn't work. From day one it never worked. It slows the drainage down, but it still drains the overflow completely within about 2 minutes. If I could have done my plumbing over, I would have just saved my $ and not used a check valve. It's much simpler to just design your sump to accommodate. Luckily I did both, so it hasn't caused me any issues.

Check salve is easy to install, solid construction. Lasts for years and is easy to replace due to being a true union valve.

Spend your money once. Heavy duty swing gate.
Only wish shipping to Canada could be done through postal service to cut down shipping costs.
Would order more stuff from BRS.

Sometimes we as aquarists spend money only on filters, rock and stock for our tanks........DO NOT cheap out on this item. This check valve is super quiet and works well (tested it out) not to mention you get an extra union in your build. I am super satisfied with this item and will get it again on my next build.
Wouldn't Run a Tank without It By JC on 5/12/2013

Very reliable and also simple to clean. It takes away the need of adding an additional union to the plumbing system.
